Clubs and societies need to fill in a couple of forms to become affiliated to MMUnion. This application process, the rules and model constitution can be found in the MMUnion constitution. A club is a sporting body (recognised by any of the home countries sports councils) and a society is cultural, political, religious or interest body.
To be a club or society you must have 20 MMU students signed up via your webpages (which we set up for you later on). Prior to this you are classed as a group, some of our resources (particularly funding) are restricted until you have 20 members.
Stage 2 involves completing our bronze documents following a meeting with Student Activities staff to chat over your plan, let you know any problems we can foresee and find ways of making your club/society be as successful as possible. If you attend the annual committee training then this meeting may not be necessary.
You can submit this form in 3 ways, please do whatever is easier for you! - You can fill out the e-form below and click submit or download by clicking here
and e-mail to us (email@example.com
) or print off, fill in and drop into the office on either site.
What do you want your club / society to be called?
Which campus are you based? MMU MMU Cheshire
What are your key objectives for the society? (we are not allowed 2 clubs/socieities doing the same thing so these must be unique, please complete upto 5)
What do you want your club / society to do over the year to complete your objectives?
What Impact do you feel your club/sociey will have on MMU students and MMUnion?
Do you know of any expenditure / income that you'll need to make to carry out these activities, any equipment / venue needs and how these needs might be met?
Your contact details;
Who is going to help you do this?
That's it! You have finished stage one, click submit below and we will action your form as quick as possible.
We will check there are no existing clubs/societies already carrying out similar activities (we’re not allowed 2 doing the same thing).
When this is completed we’ll e-mail the contacts on this form to arrange meeting. This will normally take less than 14 days in term time. At this meeting we will go through the bronze level documents
you need to complete to formalise your club / society and make sure we have the correct H&S and financial arrangements in place.
We will then set you up a webpage and give you access to be able to upload pictures and information about what you plan to do where you plan to meet and your contacts.
As a Students’ Union we are regulated by our constitution, which in conjunction with our charitable purpose (the whole reason we exist) restricts full membership of clubs and societies to any MMU student.
