Adopt an Inactive Society

 

Can’t find what you’re looking for on our list of societies? Did we previously have the society and now it’s nowhere to be seen?

Take a look at our inactive societies, as you may be able to simply adopt one.

 

This is like a fast-track version of starting a new society!

Having said that, if you would like to start a completely brand new society from scratch, our affiliation form can be found here.

 

Which societies are inactive?

See a full list below!

 

Why are these societies inactive?

All of our societies are student-led. They are run by committees, all of which must have a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. Committees can also have 5 additional roles to complement the 3 core positions (i.e. Events Coordinator or Social Secretary). Unfortunately, sometimes societies don't manage to find a committee for the following year. Consequently, they can't run as normal and are made inactive.

 

Why should I adopt a society?

Societies are like mini communities on campus. They are a great way to make friends with similar interests and increase your social activity. As you know, every society needs a committee to run it. If the society you like the look of is inactive, you and 2 others could be the ones to give it life! Committee positions are voluntary roles which look great on your CV. Committee members will have to complete a compulsory induction training and will be invited to specialised society workshops too. These are great opportunities to enhance both personal and professional skills.

 

How do I adopt a society?

If you'd like to restart one of our inactive societies, let us know! To get it off the ground for this year you’ll need another 2 people to help you run it. Once you’ve got your committee together complete the form below and we'll be in touch!

Membership Fee

It's mandatory that every society has a membership fee. The income your society generates from membership sales can be used to benefit the society as a whole. Society membership also ensures that students registered with your society are insured at your activities/events. Your membership fee can be anything between £1 and £20. You must make sure the membership fee you set is value for money!

Please state your membership fee: 

 

Society Logo

Every society gets their own webpage when they are affiliated. Yay! Here you can upload a society logo that will appear on your page. You can leave this blank if you don't yet have one.
