Starting a club at your college or university is a lot easier than you might think.
First, identify fellow students who are interested in conservation and the BHA mission. Then, find someone who is faculty, staff, or an administrator who can act as an advisor. Along the way communicate with BHA’s campus outreach coordinator and local members as they can provide additional support.
Once you've identified a core groups of students and an advisor, get your club established on campus. This is usually done through your student government. You'll most likely need bylaws. Contact BHA about bylaws other clubs have used. This should save you some time and hassle. Simply tailor them to fit the needs of your school and you'll be good to go.
After you've established your BHA club, the fun begins! Reach out to BHA's Campus Outreach Coordinator at any time for help and other resources including materials that will help guide you on organizing various get togethers, pint nights, outings, fundraising events, etc. Coordinate and partner with your state BHA chapter to help grow the BHA community.
