Affiliation/Re-affiliation

Clubs and Societies play a key role in campus life, allowing people with similar interests to get together and provide an opportunity to enjoy life outside of academia.

The major benefits for TUSA affiliated Clubs and Societies are that TUSA provides,

  • Funding to assist with holding activities and events, equipment purchases and if eligible, discounted university venue hire.
  • Insurance coverage as TUSA holds General and Products Liability insurance cover for all TUSA affiliated clubs and societies.
  • Access to training and development opportunities that might not be affordable or accessible.

New Club/Society

To affiliate a new club or society please following the 7 Simple Steps to Create a New Club/Society

TUSA’s Basic Requirements of Running a Club/Society

  1. Register and set up your Club/Society account on Rubric (QPay)
  2. Submit re-affiliation/committee details form (includes membership list & Annual General Meeting minutes) by March 31st of each year (remember that more than 50% of your executive committee must be current UTAS students)

  4. Attend the 2-day Student Leaders Conference (SLC) in November/March every year

  7. Join TUSA’s social channels

Re-Affiliation Procedure for Existing Clubs and Societies

WHY? Because if you don’t re-affiliate by 31st March each year your activities and members are not covered under our insurance so you can’t hold events or apply for grant funding.

Follow these simple steps to re-affiliate.

  1. Send out a notice to all your members that you intend to hold your Annual General Meeting (AGM). Check out our flowchart on how to organise a meeting here
  2. Prepare and send out your AGM agenda.
  3. Most importantly check your constitution for quorum; this is the minimum number of voting members who must be present at your meeting to conduct business.
  4. Complete the paperwork via Rubric (QPay). Fill out the Club/Society Affiliation/Reaffiliation Committee Information Form and attach the AGM minutes and membership list (which you can download from Rubric (QPay).

For AGM meeting agenda and minutes templates go to the TUSA website > Community > Resources & Info Library and click on C+S Meeting.
