Roster Not Compliant - You may not have listed the required number of people. You may not have identified a President, Treasurer, or Faculty/Staff Advisor. You may have listed the same person as the President and Treasurer. You may have submitted a roster with a non-UMD email address.

Constitution Not Compliant - Your organization's Constitution may be missing one or both of the required clauses or it doesn't include a ratification date.
