How to Re-register a club?

For those of you who may not be aware, registration is an online application that organizations complete every Spring semester in order to maintain their active status for the following academic year. During this time, clubs have elections to elect their new Executive Board (E-board) and complete all the necessary paperwork to transition seamlessly into the next year.

Elections should happen prior to submitting registration but can take place during the month-long window of registration. Elections are held to elect the members for your club/organization’s E-board for the upcoming academic year. Due to remote working/learning should take place on your Bulldog Connection portal. If you are unfamiliar with how to hold online elections, a “how-to guide” can be found in the documents section on the Student Organizations Bulldog Connection page (LINK)

Be sure to join as a member on the Page, in the event that the link doesn't work.

Once your organization completes its elections, you will be able to move forward with registration. The link to the Registration application can be found on your Organization's page and will take the form of a BLUE BUTTON under the club's name and will say "Re-Register this Organization." After clicking on the blue button, you will be transferred to the application which has twelve steps that need to be completed. Below are some guided steps which will help move your registration process smoothly:

  1. Organizations must upload a digital version of the club’s constitution. If you do not have a copy, you can request one by emailing Hamilton.Raymond@brooklyn.cuny.edu.

  2. Signature Cards are required. Each organization's President and Treasurer must complete a Signature card in Central Depository located in 314 Student Center. Because we are still in a distance learning format, you will complete an acknowledgment that you must complete this should we return to campus next semester or risk your club's portal being frozen.

  3. Each board member must complete SPARC Training (Sexual & Interpersonal Violence Prevention And Response Course). This only needs to be done once a year by each person regardless of how many clubs they are a part of. Once you have selected your new e-board members, please click on this link to input their information: http://tiny.cc/EBoardForm. Once you have completed this please email Hamilton.Raymond@Brooklyn.cuny.edu and state that this has been done. Once your email is received, your new board members will be uploaded into the SPARC system and will be able to complete their training on Blackboard.

  4. Please be aware when adding or inviting members to your organization’s roster, remember that the invitation will be sent to the student’s CUNY email unless the student changes their Bulldog Connection profile to their preferred email.

If you have any questions or are confused by any aspect of registration, please feel free to email Hamilton.Raymond@Brooklyn.cuny.edu.
