It is important for your club to actively keep an accurate record of your club membership. Individuals do not “automatically” join your club by virtue of being affiliated with your club’s mandate.
Example: If I am the President of the Carleton Scottish Association- all Scottish students at Carleton are not considered to be automatic members, although they are welcome to join my club as members.
As Club President, I would create a form (recommended- Google Form) and have interested individuals fill out this form to declare their membership.
On the form, they would need to include their name, CUID, and cmail. Only these individuals who fill out this form will be recognized as official members of your club. Only these students are permitted to vote in club elections and have coverage under our insurance as club members.
Community members (not official members of your club) can participate in club events should also be added to a list.
