start a club
So, you want to start a club! We like to keep starting a club as simple as possible. So, everything you need is included in our Society Starter Pack, but read on for more details
This is a document which explains the aims of the club and what the committee positions are. Constitutions are then approved by a committee of elected students.
You can download a Sample Constitution in the Starter Pack. We suggest using the sample in the Society Starter Pack and editing the following paragraphs: Name, Aims and Committee Positions. All clubs must have a President, Treasurer and Secretary. Please email your proposed constitution to the Student Activities & Volunteer Co-Ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
10 paid members
Every club or society needs 10 paid members to affiliate. This means they must have paid a membership fee to the club. The current minimum membership fee is £5, and memberships can be bought online (through the society's webpage) or in the Union offices.
Find out more about how to join a club on this page here.
These are the positions tasked with running the club or society. All people in these roles must be elected democratically by vote at a club's general meeting. You can have as many or as few positions as you like, but a society must have dedicated: President, Treasurer and Secretary. Please download and fill a Committee list form and submit electronically to email@example.com, including any changes during a semester.

If your club owns any equipment or material it will be covered by our insurance policy, provided that the club submits an inventory form upon affiliation each year. along with a risk assessment for all general activity. Please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org
