Application to start a new Cass society
In exceptional circumstance it may be possible to set up a new society. However this would mean that the new society would be have to follow all five of the following criteria:
1) The society must be distinct enough from what is currently available and the topic must not already be covered by an existing Group.
2) The society would benefit the students in a way that is not currently available
3) The society would benefit the Business School rather than better placed/better resourced within the city university based societies*
4) The society would be feasible on a Practical/Resource Level
5) The society will be open relevant and available to all of the Cass Community
*Societies that fall into this category include niche sporting activities, religious groups, political groups and individual country based social/business groups
Applications are accepted from beginning of September to the end of November only
If you feel the society meets the above criteria and wish to continue to the application, then you will be required to complete an application form and submit the completed form to Leon.firstname.lastname@example.org which willbe reviewed by a panel. If the application does meet the above criteria then you may be required you to attend a formal interview panel to further asses the validity of the Society.
