Getting Started

Want to start a new club at LBCC? You'll need an advisor and a minimum of eight members, who must be currently enrolled LBCC students. Clubs are open to all! After you read through the materials in this online manual, please email the student leadership coordinator for assistance with starting a new club. When your club is officially recognized, you'll be able to request start-up funds right away, then raise funds as needed.

Forms You'll Probably Need

Marketing and Advertising

There are a wide variety of ways to advertise your club's events and build membership:

  • Posters/flyers: Use club funds for posters printed by LBCC's Print Center, or ask Student Life & Leadership staff about making copies in our office. Posters/flyers must include the nondiscrimination language (below).
  • Electronic slides: SL&L staff  can help you create a slide for the monitors around campus. 
  • Sandwich boards: Student Life & Leadership (Forum-120) has sandwich boards available for check-out, as well as rolls of color paper and other sign-making materials for your use.
  • Campus Calendar: Contact SL&L staff about posting your club's meetings and events to the Student Events & Activities calendar, which feeds into LBLive.
  • LBLive app: Download, register and post to the Student Feed, or communicate within your own club. Student reps and advisors are invited to become administrators of their own club feed--contact SL&L staff if interested. This is the fastest and easiest way to reach the largest number of students with your information!
  • Chalking: No chalking by student organizations is allowed for any purpose anywhere on campus.
  • Nondiscrimination language: Both paragraphs below--exact wording, not abbreviated in any way--must be included on all printed marketing materials (flyers, posters, etc.)--in a sans serif, 12-point or larger font.  Slides do not require this language.  You can copy and paste right into your document:

Food and Fundraising Information

The best place to learn about fundraising is in LBCC's Student Life and Leadership Office located in the Student Union.  SL&L staff are happy to visit with you and help brainstorm viable fundraising options for your club.

When soliciting donations from local businesses, it is critical you make contact with the LBCC Foundation ahead of time. Our college has existing relationships with many companies in the area, so it’s very important you check in with them prior to approaching any local business. The Foundation must also be kept informed of all donations of products, money or services, solicited or otherwise.

Please note that although a bake sale may seem like a quick-and-easy fundraiser, you may not sell food prepared at home: it must be prepared in a kitchen certified for commercial food prep by a professional or someone with a Food Handler Card. One option is to sell Krispy Kreme Donuts. Another alternative is to purchase prepackaged baked goods locally, then repackage them (under supervision of someone with a Food Handler Card, of course!) and sell to raise money.

Club Advisors Handbook


Welcome to the Club Advisors' Handbook:  your one-stop shop for the information and support you need to be the best club advisor you can be.

Thank you for your commitment to and support of our students, within and outside the classroom. It is our goal to help ensure a safe, positive and fun experience for all LBCC clubs. We know how busy you are, and truly appreciate the extra time and effort involved in volunteering to advise a club.

Please take some time to read and digest the information contained within these materials!

Contact information

Please contact Student Leadership Coordinator Rob Camp,, if you have any questions.

Getting Started

If you're interested in becoming a club advisor and would like to be put on the Advisors-In-Waiting list, please contact Student Leadership Coordinator, Rob Camp. Club advisors must be full-time/contracted faculty, part-time faculty, manager or full-time classified staff with supervisor's permission.

Part-time classified staff may not serve as advisors. There are several requirements you must complete before your advisorship is official. Most importantly, you'll need to schedule a meeting with your club's student leader and Student Leadership Coordinator Rob Camp. Take some time and review the Club Manual, as well as the materials on this page, and come prepared with questions. Plan for about an hour.

There are several required trainings you'll need to complete as well: if it's been more than a few years, it's time to revisit them--even if you completed them as part of your New Employee Orientation. Please ensure you've completed all three of these before scheduling the above-mentioned meeting.

Please consider downloading LBLive, our student-centric smartphone app with almost 3000 registered users. LBLive greatly enhances your ability to stay in touch with club members and keep abreast of meetings and events.

For clubs that do work in the arena of controversial topics: if your club sponsors speech, an activity or event, and expects to draw resistance, criticism or reports that you are breaking rules, the College is here to protect your speech and to offer to train you how to respond with civility to critics. Contact Rob Camp for more information.

Forms You May Need

  • Club Expenditure Requisition & Reimbursement Request: to request payment of or reimbursement for expenses incurred >$25.00. Reimbursement requires your supervisor's signature.  If reimbursement is <$25.00, use a Petty Cash Voucher.  Remember to make a copy for yourself and the club files housed in Student Life & Leadership!  **It is critical that you check the club's fund periodically to ensure it is not overdrawn.**  Contact Amanda Mendell for a current balance.
  • Gift card authorization and gift card disbursement log: Find these at the bottom of the LBCC Business Office Forms page; fill out both forms prior to purchasing gift cards/gift certificates for any reason.
  • Performance Agreement: contact Amanda Mendell for assistance.

Clubs & Travel

One of the most important things for advisors to know is that if club members want to meet or volunteer off campus or travel to a conference, training or other event, you must be with them. Here are some forms you'll need if this is a likelihood for your club:

The Student Travel Form page contains additional forms and information for clubs going on large group trips. Contact Rob Camp for assistance planning this type of travel.

Finances & Fundraising

As a club advisor, you are ultimately responsible for the club's finances. Because of this, it's important that you're proactive about staying in the loop with regards to expenditures and fundraising. You can obtain the club's fund balance by emailing Rob Camp in Student Leadership.

When soliciting donations from local businesses, it is critical you make contact with the LBCC Foundation ahead of time. Our college has existing relationships with many companies in the area, so it’s very important you check in with them prior to approaching any local business. The Foundation must also be kept informed of all donations of products, money or services, solicited or otherwise.



Council of Clubs

LBCC's Council of Clubs makes it possible for clubs to pool resources, work together on common issues, share ideas and sponsor joint events that benefit all clubs. Please send a representative of your club to the bi-weekly Council of Clubs meeting! The more clubs that participate, the greater the value. Council of Clubs meets every other week. See the campus calendar for current time/day/location. 

For more information, contact SLC Director of Clubs & Student Engagement Larissa Eufrazio de Oliveria or Student Leadership Coordinator Rob Camp. You can also call 541-917-4458 or stop by the Student Life & Leadership office (Forum-120, downstairs northeast corner of the courtyard).


Start Your Own LBCC Club

Interested in starting a new club? All you need is an idea, an advisor, and at least eight club members. New clubs may request up to $100 to get started and can present a budget for materials or activities to the Council of Clubs for additional funding at any time during the academic year. Clubs hold a variety of fundraisers and other events throughout the year.

A Club Expo is held at the beginning of Winter Term in which members showcase their clubs’ offerings and provide information about meeting times and places. LBCC's Welcome Day, College Night, Earth Day and Mayfest are other annual venues in which to participate and earn funds. Some clubs also choose to host a Courtyard Lunch in October or May to promote their organizations and earn incentive funds.

Learn more about how to get started in the Club Manual above.
