For students to organize a new club they must have 10 members, a president, a faculty or staff adviser, and a written constitution.

The club must send to the Office of Student Engagement a form from The Nest, AACC’s website for student clubs, at

The club must submit its constitution to the Student Government Association and to the Advisory Council, a group of representatives from each student club that meets regularly.

“We always encourage students to look on The Nest to find organizations they might be interested in, and if not, to start one [of] their own,” SGA President Johnathan O’Dea said.
