Information and Paperwork
Interclub Council is composed of the ASWVC Vice President, who serves as the Chair,
the ASWVC Treasurer who serves as the Co-Chair, at least one representative from each
club on the Wenatchee campus, and the Student Leadership & Engagement Coordinator,
who serves as advisor for all clubs. The council is responsible for managing the club
budget, collaborating on events, and supporting club program needs.
The Omak campus coordinates student activities through the events coordinator with
the approval of the student senate.
Certified Clubs are required to participate in Interclub Council, which comes together
bi-monthly to discuss ideas, plans, partnerships, activities, and funding. Club funding
is dependent on participation in Interclub Council, as well as attendance at the fall
and spring showcases.
Club representatives do not have to hold an officer position in their club to participate
in Interclub Council. Representatives are asked to vote on various requests, be the
voice of their club, and take notes to relay information back to their individual clubs.
In rare situations, all members of a given club may be in class during the Interclub
Council meeting time. If such circumstances arise an Interclub Council Excused Absence
Petition may be granted. Approval for the petition must be received from the Student Leadership
& Engagement Coordinator and the Associate Dean of Campus Life, Equity, & Inclusion
prior to the submission of the petition form.
