Current Exec Report

Revises the VOC Handbook, pamphlet, and membership form, as necessary

VOC Membership form

  • revise last year’s membership form (there was no constitutional change this year, so update the expiry date)
  • printing:majority is given out in September, print more during the year if needed (used Copyright in the SUB this year)
  • entering forms: collect forms with fees, and enter forms as soon as possible. Probably the most important information to check is their email, and waiver signature. You will need admin privileges to update the members list (Hustler’s Handbook). Store all forms in the binder (right drawer)
  • online forms are available starting this year (http://www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/Membership under “How to Join”) —helpful for people who are away from UBC.


Looks after Clubs days

Clubs Days

  • takes place in September
  • application for booth allocation to AMS happens over summer (online form)
  • create a wiki page and post on the message board about 2 weeks in advance to advertise the event and call for volunteers for the booth—you can use the previous years’ wiki pages for the general structure
  • make sure you have enough fliers (”The Varsity Outdoor Club"--information about the VOC), brochures (2009: “What is the VOC”, “What Is Longhike”, “VOC Glossary”), membership forms, membership cards (in left drawer)
  • also prepare shiny gear, journals and songbooks to catch people’s attention. The VOC banner and poster are in the clubroom. It’s helpful to have a poster of upcoming trips
  • communication is important—there will be forms and fees coming form a lot of people
  • enter forms from each day: there are a few other execs with admin privileges who can help you out, or you can make it a workhike, ask nicely.
  • You will also be selling Longhike tickets at the booth
