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 read on to find out what happens next!

constitution

This is a document which explains the aims of the club and what the committee positions are. Once submitted, it awaits approval by a committee of elected students.

We recommend using the template included in the Society Starter Pack. You'll likely need to edit: Name, Aims and Committee Positions (including a President, Treasurer and Secretary) 

Please email your proposed constitution to the Activities & Volunteer Coordinator at alban.dickson@stir.ac.uk

membership

All clubs require 10 paid members to affiliate with the Students Union. This means paying for a Clubs & Societies Membership, and the set fee for the club itself. 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.

committee list

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 alban.dickson@stir.ac.uk, including any changes during a semester.

inventory & risk assessment

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 alban.dickson@stir.ac.uk
