Starting a New Club:

Step 1: Create a Constitution

A constitution should outline the mandate and goals of your group and how the group will operate. This may include elections, roles of the executive and other processes vital to the groups operation. Ensure the constitution is in accordance with Section 2 of the UNBSU Clubs and Societies Policy. Below are guiding documents that can help in creating your constitution.

Step 2: Contact VP Finance and Operations

Provide the constitution and any other pertinent information to the VP Finance and Operations of the UNBSU to ensure that the club meets all the requirements to become ratified. This is also an opportunity for the group to solicit advice, and get any questions answered by the VP Finance and Operations.

Step 3: Become Ratified by Council

As per the UNBSU Clubs and Societies Policy, any new group must be approved by a majority vote at council in order to become ratified. The VP Finance and Operations will present the new group to council to be voted upon. Members of the group’s executive are welcome to attend council and help present to council.
