Your Club's Purpose
Here is where you define what your club will be doing. Remember to keep it as broad and simple as possible. What you
actually do on a day-to-day basis would not be put here; instead, that would be something you do as a matter of course.
This purpose statement is, instead, your official declaration to the students at Lakehead University for why you exist.
Please write a short purpose statement. Your purpose statement should outline what your club is primarily for and what you plan to do for your members.
For example, the LU Tennis Club might write, "To promote the sport of tennis at Lakehead University and to support our members through providing resources and
opportunities for improving their playing skill."
If you want to limit your membership, you may select an option above. Please note that you may only limit your membership if your club falls into one of the above categories.
Use a declarative statement, such as: "Only students who are in the undergraduate biology program at Lakehead University are allowed to be members"
If you charge a fee for membership (e.g., all members must pay a $5 fee to be a part of the club), select "yes". Please note that if you charge fees to your membership, there must be a good reason and the fee amount must make sense, otherwise your application will not be accepted.
Your Club Officers
Your club must have at least three officers who must take on the responsibilities of President,
Treasurer, and Secretary. Officers are the individuals who run the club and make decisions. You
may change the titles of these officers or customize their responsibilities, but it is recommended
that you keep the default unless you intend on formalizing their additional responsibilities.
Your chief executive is usually responsible for running the club, planning its events,
recruiting members, and making decisions about the club's direction and activities.

Your treasurer is usually responsible for your club's finances, including paying bills, receiving donations,
and soliciting funding for your club's activities.

Your club's secretary is usually responsible for your club's official records, including recording the activities
your club takes part in. They also record minutes at your annual general meeting where your club members elect
their new officers. They also typically assist the chief executive with planning and organizing activities.
