Leading Societies/Clubs

When it comes to Societies and Clubs there are 3 essential components.

Building, Maintaining and Growing.

Building

It is really simple‍? Apart from the logo, the name and other logistics; there are 3 main things to think about when building a society.

  • Aims and Goals as a society/club (this can literally be anything).
  • The benefits it will have for you and others.
  • The team that will help you with your society.

Maintaining

Communication is key you do not want people signing up and not hearing anything from you. There are 3 key things to consider.

  • Communication - It’s as simple as having a group chat on any social platform.
  • Planning - Some students have commitments, so its best to know the whens and where as well as the activities you want to hold.
  • Involvement - Find ways you can get your members to engage with one another often and drive a sense of community/

Growing

Get more students involved  The Students’ Union will help you reach out to as many students as possible to grow but what can you do? There are 3 main things to consider.

  • Content - Post on you Society’s/Clubs social platforms
  • Content - People attract people. Have some photos/videos when people see you and your members having fun, people would want to join.
  • Content - Seeing is Believing. If students see your society/club are doing things and is consistent, they would want to join.
