Title and Purpose
This organization shall be known as the Student Wolfpack Club, affiliated with the Wolfpack Club, here at North Carolina State University.
The Club has been established with the purpose of inspiring school spirit and supporting the University’s varsity athletic programs. Opportunities for support include transportation to selected away events, meetings with coaches, interaction with athletes, etc. The Club also allows NC State students the opportunity to build priority minutes in the Student Wolfpack Club and the Wolfpack Club points systems.
Membership shall be open to any student currently enrolled at NC State. Since the Club’s purpose is to inspire school spirit, no student attending the University during that academic year shall be excluded from membership as long as they have paid their dues and have not violated the Code of Conduct.
There shall be no selection process for general membership. The only requirements are that the individual hold a genuine interest in Wolfpack athletics and pay dues.
The Club shall be governed by an elected Board of Directors voted upon by all current club members. Elections shall be held at the end of the academic year to determine the Board for the next academic year. Notice of the election shall be sent to all members and all active club members shall be allowed to vote in the online voting booth. Any necessary run-off election shall be held immediately. All candidates are required to submit an application to declare themselves a candidate. Club members in good standing are eligible to run for a Board position.
The Board of Directors shall consist of eleven (11) members. These individuals shall be chosen by the Club to be representatives and to determine Policies and Procedures as they may deem appropriate for the effective operation of the Club each academic year. Board members shall be held to an attendance policy. The attendance policy will be determined at the beginning of each academic year by the Executive Committee.
The Executive Committee shall consist of four Board members: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Minutes Keeper. The President’s responsibilities are to preside over the Board of Directors’ meetings and general Club meetings. The Vice President is elected to assist the President, assume the duties of the President in his/her absence, and organize Homecoming events. The Secretary is elected to take minutes at all Board and general Club meetings. Also, the secretary will be in charge of the ticketing procedures used for distributions. The Minutes Keeper is elected to oversee and maintain the points system.
The Executive Committee is elected from and by the current Board. In the case of a tie, the position of President can be held by at most two people, to be known as Co-Presidents, subject to approval by the current Board. All other Executive Committee members shall be decided by an immediate run-off election with all those present.
Board positions which become vacant during the year shall be filled at the discretion of the Club Advisor.
The Board meetings shall be held on at least a monthly basis at a time and location voted upon by the Board. A two-thirds majority of the Board must be present to conduct official business. An emergency meeting can be called by the President, but must be at an acceptable time for two-thirds of the Board.
Dues and Benefits
Dues shall be an annual fee set by the Wolfpack Club (currently $30.00) or 4-year plan (currently $100).
Benefits offered to due-paying members include, but are not limited to, priority seating at football and men’s basketball games, an online subscription to The Wolfpacker magazine, a car window decal, a Club T-shirt, and priority minutes in the Student Wolfpack Club and the Wolfpack Club points sytsems. Other benefits may become available during the school year as determined and offered by the Board and Wolfpack Club.
Meetings for the general Club membership shall be held as opportunities for speakers, watch parties, food giveaways, etc. occur. These meetings shall be called by the President and notification sent to all Club members. These meetings are not mandatory for all members but may offer points as an incentive for attendance.
Any request for changes in the Constitution must be brought to a two-thirds majority vote in a Board meeting. Any request for changes in the Policies and Procedures must be brought to a simple majority vote in a Board meeting. The amendment may be both moved and voted upon in the same meeting.
The Student Wolfpack Club Board reserves the right to deem actions of Student Wolfpack Club members inappropriate and punish according to the Policies and Procedures.
Discrimination based upon race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation is in violation of federal and state law and North Carolina State University policy, and will not be tolerated.
Method of Dissolution
In the event of Dissolution, the Student Wolfpack Club will donate all monies remaining to NC State Athletics.
