Formerly known as "Clubs Day", Clubs Carnival takes place on Wednesday 14th March from 12-2pm, and offers clubs a second chance at boosting their Semester One membership intake. The event is particularly geared at capturing those students who didn't make it along to O-Day - think second/third/fourth year veterans, those who couldn't get time off work, or just those who decided they had better things to do in the last week before semester kicks off. Lower Henderson Court will come alive with a festive yet laid-back carnival vibe, with FREE carnival ride, DJ, a sideshow alley, and plenty of giveaways!

With the exception of clubs operating under their own custom Guild-approved constitutions, all clubs are required to adhere to the above default club constitution in all club governance.
All clubs are required to conduct an Annual General Meeting each year (in September, October or November), to elect committee positions for the following year, and report to members on the club's activities throughout the year. From 2017 onward, AGM minutes are also a formal registration requirement. For a quick guide to how it all works, download these handy guidelines.
All clubs must keep an up-to-date financial statement each the year. You’ll also need to provide a copy to show your members at your AGM & to the Guild when the time comes to re-register. For a better understanding of what needs to be included in your financial statement, download our template.
This document is a mandatory requirement for ALL club events - whether on or off campus. Your EMP must be submitted at least three weeks prior to your proposed event. For large, complex, or high-impact events, please provide a minimum of six weeks' notice. The EMP plays a crucial role in ensuring that Guild, University, and local government standards are met, and also aims to identify instances in which additional permits and paperwork are required. Though potentially daunting at first, this form is designed to walk you through all the considerations that must be taken into account when running an event, providing realistic insight into the work involved. An EMP helps to ensure that no important details are missed along the way, and also allows the CO to step in and offer additional advice and support as necessary.
Venue Bookings (Bentley Campus) - all Guild-registered clubs are able to book venues on campus for free (with some exceptions), so next time you need somewhere quiet to run a club meeting, a lecture theatre for a guest presentation, or an outdoor space for a larger event, simply complete the above EMP - which includes the required venue hire form - and return it via email to the Clubs Officer, at email@example.com. If you require a last minute booking, you may wish to consider booking Club HQ instead - this can be booked without an EMP via the Guild Resource Booking Form, below.
Want to run a BBQ to raise funds for your club, or simply build awareness that you actually exist? Maybe you just need a trestle table to sell tickets or push membership sign-ups along the Guild promenade? Or perhaps you'd like to run a club meeting in Club HQ (the old pharmacy space)? For all this and more, simply complete this form.
The Curtin Student Guild is committed to ensuring safe, consensual and enjoyable campus club culture. Please read this fact sheet for further info on how you can play your part.
Clubs are required to include a copy of the Guild logo on any promotional material they produce (e.g. posters, banners, etc.). There are specific rules attached to how this logo is used (particularly on posters), so please be sure to read the Style Guide below before using.
Any event held at Curtin involving a reasonable amount of risk requires a Health and Safety risk assessment (RA) to be developed. To get started, we recommend downloading this generic risk assessment, and amending it to suit the specific details of your event. For further advice, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
