Three basic steps:
- Write a constitution
- Bring it to the JCR meeting with a motion
- Run your baby
In a little more detail:
1. A constitution describes what the committee is, how it runs, and who can be a member. It’s different for every committee, but there is a standard format for every committee. Every committee needs a head, a treasurer and a secretary (or at least someone who does those jobs).
You can see an example of a constitution here.
2. Write a motion a bit like this:
This JCR Notes: the lack of a Something Society
This JCR Believes: the JCR would benefit from a Something Society
This JCR Resolves: to incorporate the Something Society Constitution into the JCR Constitution.
Submit this motion to the JCR meeting (on every other Sunday, 6:30). Persuade people that Something Society is a good idea. Win the vote.
