Applications for new clubs consists of FOUR sections:
Section 1- Administrative Information
This section allows club executives to indicate basic information about the club, such as: name, category, mission statement, email request, primary contact person, executive information, etc.
Club Administrative information as well as a break down of your application. This form is mandatory, to be completed alongside the submission of all intended documents described below. This Administrative Information Form can be found here.
Section 2- Cover Letter
This section allows club executives to explain and outline their club. It is important that the executives address who/what the club is about, its goals/ purposes/intentions, why it is unique, and how it will contribute to the McMaster student community. A template for the cover letter is not provided.
Section 3- Year Plan
This section allows club executives to outline the event programming they wish to enact in the academic year. Please note that the MSU does not expect each club to have its programming 100% ready for next year – we understand any plans are tentative and subject to change – however, it is important that executives have a general idea of the programming they wish to implement.
Section 4- Constitution
The club constitution is the governing document of each ratified club. It generally outlines the responsibilities and duties of each executive position as well as rules and regulations for elections and other club operations. A basic constitution template is provided, but MUST be personalized by club executives to suit the needs of the club. Instructional notes have been posted within the club constitution document.
A template for the Constitution can be found here.
