What is a membership list and why does my club need it?
Membership form can be anything you want it to be. We’ve seen & acceted everything from looseleaf piece of paper to full blown fancy excel sheets with fancy calculations.

Generally student groups find it helpful to collect student names, phone numbers, and emails, as well as C0###### numbers in case a student needs to be verified.
Please send the email to  to send the membership form to me when it’s collected.

Info for clubs organizers 

Don’t over-think tabling! Yes, you do want to plan where to best get students, but since there is no perfect place to table, don’t spend all your time worrying about not finding the perfect place to do some outreach!

Most of the time, it just works to pick a place, then go to that place. Don’t worry about booking table spaces with the college, expect in odd situations (For instance in 2014 from about November to December, it was impossible to table in the fisher foyer, since the place was booked by everyone else exploiting students before the Christmas holidays…I meant, selling their wares to students.

Lansdowne Fisher foyer is the best since the book store, cafeteria and CCSS office is in that area, so everyone kinda gravitates there, although it never hurts to move around the campus. Young building can be successful, as can Wilna Thomas and Ewing.

Interurban it works best to move around the campus; Spending too much time in CBA, you won’t get to talk to the tech students, or trades students, so best bet is to move around the campus.

And, I always tell people that sometimes your best bet is to simply ditch the whole table aspect of it, and wander around with a clipboard chatting with people.

We want to start a club and will need space to operate. How does that work? Can I book the movement studio, a classroom, cafeteria, a table for the foyer, etc?

How do I advertise for such and such an event?

I need to sell tickets, can I do that in the office?
