Taking Over an Old or Inactive Anime Club

So you’re taking over an old or inactive anime club, and it looks like there’s a lot of dust to wipe off.

Make sure your club is still recognized.

For schools and libraries, clubs usually have to be recognized every year, so you’ll need to redo the application process or meet with the person in charge. The good thing is, if the original advisor for your anime club hasn’t left, you don’t need to make another constitution or find another advisor (unless they say they don’t want to be the advisor again).

Community clubs don’t need official recognition.

Starting Out for Community Clubs

There are many routes you can take to start a community anime club.

1. Find members and meet up! Many times, people just meet friends who are anime fans. Later, more and more people get together, and soon, you’ve got yourself a full anime club.

2. Use online resources. Websites such as Meetup.com help to connect fans with other fans anywhere in the world. Facebook, Twitter, and Weebly.com are other resources you can use.

3. Start your own website and post the times and places of your club meetups.

Starting Out for University and Community College Clubs

1. Go to Student Services. Sometimes, the student government (commonly called Associated Students) also handles student organizations.

2. Get an application for a starting a club/organization.

This is what you usually need to start an official club:
1. An on-campus advisor (a teacher or faculty member who works at school) and their signature on the application.
2. A minimum number of members. (This is different for each school. )
3. A constitution or a list of rules for your anime club.
4. A budget or how much you think everything will cost in a year.

3. Complete the application and turn it in to Student Services.

This is a lot of work. Why get recognized?
Schools give money, venues, and privileges to recognized groups. By becoming recognized, you won’t have to worry about starting from $0 with no base to set your manga on.
