THE 2014 AFFILIATION PROCESS:
Current 2013 Calendar Year Clubs: AGM pro formas for Current CalendarYear Clubs are available in the Clubs Resources Section of this web site. The 2014 Full and Provisional Affiliation paperwork was emailed directly to all 2013 Current Club Presidents and Secretaries. Otherwise, the 2014 affiliation forms for 2013 Current Calendar Year Clubs are only available from a C&S Officer; contact Jacq or Candice. Current 2013 Calendar Year Clubs may finalise 2014 Full Affiliation before 2014 if the Club is able to hold its' Annual General Meeting (AGM) before the end of the 2013 academic year. Otherwise, a 2013 Current Calendar Year Club must hold its' AGM after start of March 2014 before it can complete the 2014 Full Affiliation.
Brand new Clubs seeking to start up in 2014 must first gain Provisional Affiliation; this gets a new Club on the RUSU books and a time frame to complete the Full Affilliation process in 2014. Full Affiliation is required for a club to get a club bank account and to access RUSU Clubs Grant funding (amongst other benefits). A new club gaining 2014 Provisional Affiliation must hold an Inaugural General Meeting (IGM) after March 2014 before it can finalise its' 2014 Full Affiliation.
RUSU Clubs must re-affiliate on an annual basis.
The Provisional Application Form for Calendar Year BRAND NEW Clubs is available through the link below. You will receive confirmation from RUSU as to whether or not Provisional Affiliation is granted. If unsuccessful, you will receive advice about what you may be able to do to amend your application. IE: SUBMISSION OF A PROVISIONAL AFFILIATION APPLICATION FORM DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MEAN YOUR NEW CLUB IDEA HAS BEEN GRANTED PROVISIONAL AFFILIATION. That must be confirmed by RUSU.
Lapsed Clubs (Previous Clubs that were affiliated in 2012 or 2011 but not in 2013) please contact Jacq for advice.
