Writing a constitution

Writing a club constitution is easier than you think. All organizations need to establish procedures in order to conduct business effectively. A constitution is a way to establish these procedures. The constitution sets forth the principles that an organization is built upon. It establishes basic principles for future years that are not likely to change.

Constitutions need to be typed in a word processing document for easy editing and updates. Computers are available in the College Center for this purpose. A format and sample constitution is provided in the club charter packet.

The constitution will be presented to the Club and Programs Specialist for evaluation and recommendation to the ASPCC General Council. Contact the Club and Programs Specialist for help!
