THE 2014 AFFILIATION PROCESS:
Please read the following document about how to start a new RUSU Affiliate Club: How to Start a new RUSU Affiliated Club in 2014
Brand new Clubs seeking to start up in 2014 must firstly gain Provisional Affiliation; this gets a new Club on the RUSU books and a time frame to complete the 2014 Full Affilliation process. Full Affiliation is required for a club to get a club bank account and to access RUSU Clubs Grant funding and insurance (amongst other benefits). A new club gaining 2014 Provisional Affiliation must hold an Inaugural General Meeting (IGM) . Current Clubs (2013 Clubs) must hold an Annual General Meeting as part of the annual Full Affiliation requirements.
After reading through the above document, please contact the Department for advice if required. When you are ready, the Provisional Application Form for Calendar Year BRAND NEW Clubs is available through this link:Your Link

If unsuccessful, you will receive advice about what you may be able to do to amend your application.
