Creating Activities For Your Club

There we have it! A club that holds your visions and members who ride with your vision boat. Now, what? What should we do with our boat full of people? We can’t just stand (or sit) there watching the waves or watching other people on other boats do something fun. We have to do something for ourselves! Every club has got something to do other than existing. If nothing happens, it is time for you to move into action.

Ask, “What do we need?”

In figuring out what to do, you should ask yourselves, what do we need. Brainstorming activities right away is a challenge for every club out there so you have got to start somewhere. Start with this question and work out from there.

Answers to the question of needs will not only allow ideas for activities but it would also allow every people in your club to give suggestions founded on the significance of your club. Sometimes, what your club needs is not only for yourselves but for other people as well. From this, you could create activities that are focused on giving service to other people or solely for your members.

Ask, “What do we do with ideas?”

After a long list of suggestions of what could be done, decide which of all the ideas would you actually do. Yes, all ideas can be good and beneficial but would it be feasible? Can you and your club members pull it off? Ask yourselves. Only you and your members can commit to those ideas. Consider your finances too! Will your funds be enough? If your idea of an activity is a fundraiser, ask yourselves if you have enough capital to ensure the activity. Would it be worth it given an estimation of the returns? Or would it be possible to partner with other clubs?

It is important to plan everything and anticipate a lot of things when it comes to creating activities for your club. Ask questions and talk about it before finalizing all your ideas into activities.

Ask, “Where will we put this?”

You are done choosing which ideas goes into the activity box. Now, it is time to decide where to put this. You have to calendar activities for organization. Bring an actual calendar! Plot the activities into the calendar. Let everyone see how all the activities go well into the calendar. You don’t want activities together in a month, would you? You need to let everyone breath from the toxicity of planning promotions!

Consider your club’s capacity in pulling off activities. It could look good if you are jam-packed with endless activities. That would let people see how amazing your club is. But, you cannot put yourselves into risk of too many sleepless nights and fund deficits if you don’t give yourselves a rest. Make time to refresh those energies and creative juices.

Keep your boat sailing! Keep your club going with all those fun activities. Remember to have the fun in planning activities. That is how it should be done.

The Rule of Thumb in Keeping A Club Relevant

It’s no easy task creating a school club and inviting members to join. For that alone, you’d be needing strength, determination and extra efforts to make it happen. But, you should also know that starting a club is only half the battle. The other half involves marketing for it to exist in the long run. If you ever wonder about how successful clubs (or student organizations) manage to be relevant for so long, here’s what you need to know.

Focus on the thrust.

You may have formed the mission and vision of your club as you started it. Also, you may already have a powerhouse of people supervising and leading the club. But have you developed the thrust? By definition, thrust is the “principal purpose” or a “line of reasoning.” It’s more about the strategy on how you can achieve your vision as a club.Think about it carefully and let your key people instill it in the minds and hearts of everyone.

Engage and excite your members.

No one could vouch for a club’s greatness better than its members. As an officer, you know you have the resources, including the funds for a reason. Always use it for the benefit of the members and not for your own. Think of a fun little get-together, a one-day sports event or a simple lunch to get to know each other well. Create a more personal and harmonious relationship with each other. Your members would definitely appreciate it.

Delegate tasks.

According to an article written by Keyclub, club members are more interested when they’re handed responsibilities. This makes them feel useful and needed even with the simple task of being in charge of registration. Of course, bigger tasks are more advantageous both for the member and the club. For example, ask a guy to organize and oversee a sports rally event together with an officer. It may just be a way for him to discover his passion and strength for an Event and Logistics’ work. US News says it will follow them all through life. It will also give them a hindsight of what they could do in the future. You’re not only keeping a sports-minded guy in your club, you’re also helping him unlock his other potentials.

Keep your club visible online.

Create a page and do regular posting with sports-related and club-related content. Let your members share it on their pages or post about it in their own timelines. Have a “multimedia officer” run your social media pages so everyone can see the fun, excitement, bonding, and learnings your club has to offer. It’s also a possible way to attract other clubs to do a collaboration with you. Remember, external affairs are just as important as internal affairs. Staying online is marketing at its most powerful, after all.

Leadership– pass it on.

This is the most important lesson of all. If you spent a good four years serving and leading your club, you must already have someone trained to take your position after your term. During your year/s as an officer, see to it that you have an “apprentice” or an “assistant officer” doing your work so he or she can succeed once you leave. It’s one thing to be good at what you do. But, it’s also on a completely different level if you are capable of influencing and teaching someone to do better than you (of course, not in a spiteful way).

The leaders or officers drives the life of the group. Therefore, you should make sure that the next ones are just as passionate about achieving the mission, vision and thrust of your club, to keep it going and growing each passing day.
