Chad PingelFinance Board Jpeg

Vice President of Finance

Chad PingelMy name is Chad Pingel, and I am a sophomore economics and finance double major.  As Vice President of Finance, I establish and manage the entire budget for SGA.  I also organize the Grants Committee that gives money to student organizations to fund their events, philanthropies, etc.  I love being able to give back to the school that has given me so many opportunities, and through this position in SGA, I am able to encourage the financial stability and growth of the student organizations. This year, the Finance Board and I are working actively to increase the Grant support given to students and promote the efficiency and effectiveness of the Grants process. Please feel free to email me or the grants account at grants@butler.edu.  

Outside of SGA, I work as a Butler Student Ambassador on campus. I enjoy sharing my passion about our campus with others and encouraging them to attend here.  On weekdays, you can usually find me studying in a cubicle at either of the two libraries. I love participating in SGA sponsored events and the different Greek activities on campus!  Please feel free to contact me with any budget or Grants questions with SGA or your own organization. Go Dawgs!!!
