CREATING YOUR CLUB CONSTITUTION

  1. Develop a constitution with the assistance of the club advisor and prospective club officers, following the guidelines provided.

  2. The draft of the constitution will be reviewed by the Student Life Office. All requested changes must be made prior to presenting this document to Inter-Club Council (ICC).  Club constitutions will only be reviewed if all paperwork listed above is complete and all officers listed are eligible.

  3. Once the constitution is approved by the Student Life Office it will be placed on the ICC agenda for voting.  A representative from the prospective club must be present.

  4. If approved, the ICC representative or the ICC alternate representative must attend monthly ICC meetings. Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month (when school is in session) from 3-5 p.m. Dates are subject to change pending school holidays and/or closures.

  5. Amendments or changes to a club constitution must follow the same approval process as newly submitted constitutions (refer to item #2).
