Brandeis Involvement Fair–Fall 2017
Sunday, September 3, 2017
1 p.m. –3 p.m.
Shapiro Campus Center Great Lawn (rain location: Levin Ballroom)

The Fall Involvement Fair is an annual event, hosted by the Department of Student Activities, where representatives from over 200 student clubs and organizations come together to advertise the involvement and engagement opportunities available for students.

To register for the fair, your club or organization must currently be recognized, chartered, or secured and listed on the Student Clubs and Organizations web site: http://www.brandeis.edu/clubs/. Registration is available on a first come, first served basis, and will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, August 25 or when table space has reached capacity. Please ensure that only one representative from each organization registers for the club. Each organization will be sharing a 6-foot table with one other club.

Set up begins at noon on Sunday, September 3. All clubs and organizations MUST check-in by 12:30 p.m. at the Department of Student Activities table on the patio by the entrance to SCC. Clubs should limit representatives to two or three members at a time and refrain from bringing large items that will not fit on the table space provided. Due to the outdoor location and the amount of foot traffic, we will not have power sources available at the fair; therefore items requiring power will not be permitted.

To reduce waste, please consider using a sign-up sheet instead of having printed materials so that you can email attendees with information and/or add them to e-lists. Please note that since the event is scheduled to be outdoors, laptop screens may be difficult to view and papers can blow away. Fair attendees are often attracted by colorful signs, swag and snacks. However, large items that do not fit in the space provided or that obstruct walkways will not be allowed.

We will have a complete list of clubs represented on our website by Friday, September 1 at: http://www.brandeis.edu/activities/.


*********************************

Club Leader Listserv

It is imperative that at least two current members from your club (we recommend the President and Treasurer, but this can be unlimited) are subscribed to the Club Leaders listserv to receive announcements about registration for the Involvement Fair, as well as emails regarding the Club Leaders' Conference, Allocation Board submission information, treasury deadlines, and other club news.  If you are not already part of the Club Leaders listserv, go to https://lists.brandeis.edu/wws, log in with your Brandeis Unet and click on the bottom left where it says “subscribe”.

********************************* 

Anti-Hazing Form and Google Site Update

Every year club leaders must complete an Anti-Hazing Form as well as provide the Department of Student Activities with updated club leader information. Please complete the Club Google Site Update and Anti-Hazing Acknowledgment Form so your most up-to-date club info will be reflected on your club's Google Site and to acknowledge your compliance with hazing law. Only one representative per club needs to complete the form. Any club that does not complete this form by October 15 will run the risk of being de-recognized and de-chartered by the Student Union.

If you have any questions about the Anti-Hazing Form or Google Site, please feel free to contact Katie MacNamara (kmcnamara@brandeis.edu), Department Coordinator.
