In order to successfully plan an event for your club on the Westmont campus, many details need to be considered. If proposed club events involve more than 50 students, or go beyond the scope of your club members, officers must submit an event proposal form available on the Campus Life Office website. These types of large scale events must be co-sponsored by a Campus office, department or organization. These event planning guidelines are in place to help clubs plan the best events possible and to ensure that they receive the support they need.
To request rooms, club officers can make a request through the Clubs Administrator. The Administrator will check the availability of rooms through the campus scheduling system and finalize reservations if rooms are available. To discuss venue options please contact the WCSA Clubs Administrator.
Equipment reservations (e.g. microphones, projectors, speakers) can be made at http://www.westmont.edu/_offices/emo/index.html. All equipment rental and set up is charged so be sure to make budget provisions for these charges through a WCSA funding proposal. For the account number, contact the WCSA Clubs Administrator.
Amplified sound is a sensitive issue on the Westmont campus and any event proposals featuring amplified sound must be reviewed and approved by Jena Harris, the Property Coordinator at Westmont.
Any event requiring payment to an individual for services rendered or requiring a signed contract must be approved by the WCSA Clubs Administrator, the WCSA Council, and the Campus Life Office. Additionally, the contract made out to the Westmont Office of Procurement must be signed only by Westmont’s Contract Administrator no later than 2 weeks before the event.
Any event with risk of any kind will need to be approved by Westmont’s Risk Manager.
Events intended for fundraising purposes or featuring fundraising as an element of the event, must be approved by the WCSA Clubs Administrator, the WCSA Council, and the Campus Life Office. Additionally, if tax-deductible receipts are expected in response to the fundraising efforts of the event, the proposal will need approval by the Office of College Advancement.
Events that involve solicitation of donations from either private individuals or businesses will also require the approval of the Office of College Advancement.
Clubs are NOT PERMITTED to fund raise without written approval through the Office of College Advancement. Any club fundraising plans must be pre-approved by WCSA and the Director of Campus Life. Once pre-approved clubs may submit applications to fundraise through the Office of College Advancement. These applications are reviewed at the beginning of each semester.
Anyone driving on college business as an official campus club must apply and be approved as a college driver. In order to request approval, please login to your student profile at the following link: https://secure.westmont.edu/cgi-bin/WebObjects/studentProfile.woa/wa/ and complete the driver info.
Because club transportation is typically not a funded expense through WCSA, clubs are not permitted to reserve vehicles through the college. Students are encouraged to use dial-a-ride or to have club members drive to club events.
