So you want to start a new club at NDC? Great! What do you do now?
Here are 5 steps to get you started…
- Group Name
Determine a club name. Keep the NDC Mission in mind when naming your group as your group name needs to be school appropriate.
Determine who will be your club advisor. Must be a full-time faculty, staff, or administrator of the college.
- Mission Statement
Each Club needs a mission statement that describes the purpose of your organization. Focus on what the group does, how will you serve students and the community, and how your group connects with the NDC Mission.
- Hold an interest meeting
Goal is to gauge level of interest in the NDC student population. Each clubs needs a minimum of 4 members to become an official club. Create an agenda for your meeting and discuss the mission statement and goals of the club. Advisors are strongly encouraged to attend this interest meeting. Build in an ice-breaker and listen to students and allow them to voice their opinions and ideas. Have a sign-in sheet and determine what needs to happen next and who plans to help with that project. Spread the word via social media, word of mouth, banners, postings, etc. to get others involved too!
- Request Funding from Undergraduate Student Government (USG)
