Starting a Club/Organization

Starting a Club/Organization

NEMCC encourages students to create student groups, when the group they are establishing enhances and compliments the College’s mission and goals, campus community, and does not duplicate the efforts of a currently recognized student club or organization.  Below you will find a step-by-step guideline that will assist you to establish your own student club or organization.

Students are encouraged to explore currently recognized student clubs/organizations before establishing one of their own.  When a group exists and holds the same purpose and goals of another student group, the Student Activities’ Office encourages students to combine resources to fully maximize the potential growth and development of a student group.  If after careful assessment you think your interests are not represented in one of Northeast’s existing clubs/organizations, we encourage you to create and establish one of your own.


Steps Involved

NOTIFICATION OF INTEREST

Students may come into the Student Activities Office in the Frank & Audrey Haney Union and inform us of an interest in starting a new club.

OUTREACH TO INTERESTED STUDENTS

Students must submit a list of at least three interested students who are willing to act as officers for the club.

FACULTY ADVISOR

Students must have at least two full-time faculty or staff members who are willing to serve as the advisor for the club.  It is the student’s responsibility to find an advisor for the club they wish to start.

CLUB CONSTITUTION

Students must submit a club constitution to the Student Activities Office prior to their first meeting.

REVIEW

The Student Government Association will review all paperwork for approval of new student clubs or organizations.  Club advisors will be notified of approval or disapproval following SGA’s meeting.  If any discrepancies are discovered, advisors will be notified so that they may be corrected and resubmitted for review.
