Chartering a Club

If you think you have the drive and the leadership skills to get your group off the ground, then you’re ready to start the process. Becoming an officially recognized student organization at PCC Cascade is easy. The first thing you should do is obtain the packet of information entitled Club Charter Packet (form #0) from the Club and Programs Specialist in the Student Union (SU 207). This has all of the information and guidelines you will need to start your club or organization. In addition, the Club and Programs Specialist will be able to help you answer any questions you might have. The following four steps will help you start your club/organization:

  • Hold an informal meeting with interested students to determine the club’s purposes and objectives.
  • Complete the Club Charter forms, including creating a club constitution
  • Identify and successfully recruit a full or part time staff member (employed by PCC) to represent your club as the advisor.
  • Present your proposed club/organization for approval by the ASPCC with the preceding parts completed.
