Dana Hills High School Med Club Constitution

Article I: NAME: Med Club

Article II: PURPOSE: To inform students of the wide variety and possibilities of the medical field, while encouraging and inspiring members to explore their own interests and how they can act on them.

Article III: ELIGIBILITY: Any student with an interest in the medical field is eligible for membership. While it is beneficial to be a member of the Health and Medical Occupations Academy, it is not a requirement for membership. It is requested that each student respects one another for their personal interests in order to protect the positive learning environment.

Article IV: ELECTION OF OFFICERS: At the first meeting, contact information is         distributed to prospective officers. The prospective officer must then send their full name to the club’s contact. In response, the club distributes the application to the prospective officers. The application will include brief questions, such as why a prospective officer wants the position and how he or she would improve the club. The applications are evaluated by the president, whom determines the election of the officers.

Article V: RESPONSIBILITIES: An officers acts as an ambassador and model of the club and its culture. An officer is to attend every meeting (with an absolute requirement of at least every other meeting) and help orchestrate club meetings. In addition, they are required to attend an additional officer meeting once a month to discuss the plans for the following club meeting with all members. To the discretion of the club president, an officer may be assigned to present a segment, such as Doctor’s Digest or Career Path of the Day.

 

Article VI: REMOVAL OF OFFICER: An officer is subject to removal if he or she fails to attend two or more consecutive meetings or fails to meet the responsibilities of an officer. Before removal of the officer, the president is to confer to his other officers, but the ultimate decision is up to the discretion of the club president.

Article VII: PHILOSOPHY OF FUNDRAISING: In addition to periodic fundraising campaigns, donations will be gladly accepted and used to purchase thank-you gifts for any professional who is brought in as a guest speaker. These funds would ensure the gratitude of the speaker and reflect the club’s ethics in a positive and respectful manner. 

Article VIII: LIABILITY: Members will always be informed of any possible safety hazards and are expected to follow these instructions carefully and respectfully. Members must verbally agree to follow these expectations, and failure to comply will void their agreement.

Article IX: AMENDMENTS: Amendments may be proposed by any member of the club. A proposed amendment must approved unanimously by the club cabinet and then sent to a club vote. The amendment must then receive 2/3 majority of the popular vote in order to be approved.

Article X: SERVICE PROJECTS: Members will be required to attend a minimum of one community service event. These events may include activities such as a bake sale to raise funds that are to be donated to a local medical facility, or assistance with the blood drive held on campus.

Article XI: CLUB INTEGRATION: The club desires a diversity of members achievable by making the meetings known and welcoming. Information about the club will be expressed through social media posts, word of mouth, and flyers allocated around the campus. Officers will be requested to ask their teachers to announce to the class of upcoming meetings.
