REGISTRATION AND GOVERNANCE


2017 Club Registration Form 
Semester One intake now closed. Semester Two intake opens 26th June.

To have your club affiliated with the Guild, simply fill out this online form, ensuring all requirements outlined within are met. If your application is successful, you'll score a bunch of great entitlements, including funding, promotion, venue hire, equipment hire, and much more. Contact the Clubs Officer via clubs@guild.curtin.edu.au for more info!

Default Club Constitution
With the exception of clubs operating under their own custom Guild-approved constitutions, all clubs are required to adhere to the above default club constitution in all club governance. 


Club AGM Guidelines
All clubs are required to conduct an Annual General Meeting each year (in September, October or November), to elect committee positions for the following year, and report to members on the club's activities throughout the year. From 2017 onward, AGM minutes are also a formal registration requirement. For a quick guide to how it all works, download these handy guidelines.




OPERATIONS AND EVENTS


Event Management Plan
This document is a mandatory requirement for all club events - whether on or off campus. Your EMP must be sent to the Clubs Officer (CO) at least four weeks' prior to your event, and plays a crucial role in ensuring that Guild, University, and local government standards are met. The EMP also aims to identify instances in which additional permits and paperwork are required. Though potentially daunting at first, this form is designed to walk you through all the considerations that must be taken into account when running an event, providing realistic insight into the work involved. An EMP helps to ensure that no important details are missed along the way, and also allows the CO to step in and offer additional advice and support as necessary.


Guild Logo (for club promotional material)
Clubs are required to include a copy of the Guild logo on any promotional material they produce (e.g. posters, banners, etc.). There are specific rules attached to how this logo is used (particularly on posters), so please be sure to read the Style Guide below before using.


Club Poster Guidelines
Want to get your posters seen on campus? There are a few basic guidelines you'll need to follow. Download this handy document for the full rundown.


Venue Hire Application
All Guild-registered clubs are able to book venues on campus for free (with some exceptions), so next time you need somewhere quiet to run a club meeting, a lecture theatre for a guest presentation, or an outdoor space for a larger event, simply complete this form and return it via email to the Clubs Officer, at clubs@guild.curtin.edu.au. Please note that a minimum of two weeks' notice is required for all venue hire requests. If you require a last minute booking, you may wish to consider booking Club HQ instead - this can be booked via the Guild Resource Booking Form, below.


Blank Health and Safety Risk Assessment Template
Any event held at Curtin involving a reasonable amount of risk requires a Health and Safety risk assessment (RA) to be developed. Your RA must address what risk mitigation measures will be implemented at the event. To assist you in creating your own risk assessment, we recommend using RA's from previous events as a guide. Sample RA's can be requested from clubs@guild.curtin.edu.au.


Guild Resource Booking Form
Wanna run a BBQ to raise funds for your club, or simply build awareness that you actually exist? Maybe you just need a trestle table to sell tickets or push membership sign-ups along the Guild promenade? Or perhaps you'd like to run a club meeting in Club HQ (the old pharmacy space)? For all this and more, simply complete this form.


Guild BBQ Risk Assessment
All club BBQs must be run in accordance with the measures outlined within this document. Please be sure to read it thoroughly prior to running your BBQ. Safety first!
