Bylaws for the Mallet Assembly Honors Program
1. Members are responsible for the actions of their guests.
2. The library and computer room shall be maintained as places of study at all times. Any activity, which hinders the usefulness of the library or the computer room as a place of study, must be terminated upon request of an active resident member wishing to use these facilities as a place of study.
3. No officer shall receive remuneration for services rendered in the line of duty unless it is in the form of an award presented by the Assembly for outstanding performance benefiting the Assembly.

5. Those individuals associated with the Assembly who are not members may achieve the status of an affiliate of the program by receiving the sponsorship of three active Malleteers and/or the Admissions Committee Chairman. This status of affiliate will entitle the designated individual to participate in any Mallet functions, to purchase Mallet jerseys, and to speak at Assembly meetings, but not vote.
6. An applicant may apply for entrance into the Assembly only three times during one semester. Any attempts to apply after the third application will be immediately and automatically rejected.
7. A non-active member can pay an activity fee equal to half of the base Assembly fee for the semester to participate in any Mallet functions but not vote.
8. Before Assembly fees are due each semester, a member of the Assembly is considered to be an active member if they reside in the building or if they paid Assembly fees the previous semester. After this time, only members who have paid Assembly fees for the current semester are considered active members.
9. Whenever possible, rooms shall be allocated to members on a seniority basis with the following priorities (in descending order of importance):
- a. Number of semesters residing in Mallet-operated housing,
- b. Number of hours earned at the University of Alabama; and
- c. Discretion of the Senior Monitor.
10. No member may be forced to move out of a room they occupied at the end of the previous non-summer semester, unless the individual's roommate is eligible for a private room and has lived in the room for the most semesters. In the case of two members vying for the same room with different roommate preferences, the total seniority of the member and their roommate shall be considered to determine who gets the room.
