Campus Club Governance
While the Campus Club has been connected to the University of Minnesota since the club was founded in 1911, it is not officially part of the University. It is a separate 501 (c)(7) non-profit membership corporation.
The club is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board is in charge of all of the properties, governance, and management of The Campus Club, unless delegated to the Executive Director. The Board meets monthly.
- To provide financial oversight of the Club
- To approve the annual budget.
- To establish membership dues and categories.
- To appoint an Executive Director who shall be responsible for day-to-day operations and for monitoring progress towards goals and objectives determined by the Board. The Executive Director reports to the Board at each regular meeting and attends all meetings except when an “in camera” meeting or portion of a meeting is called. The Executive Director reports to the membership at the annual meeting. The Executive Director is an ex officio and nonvoting member of the Board and of the Executive Committee and the Audit Committee.
The Campus Club Bylaws requires an annual election of members of the Board of Directors. The Nominating Committee presents a slate of candidates. This slate is presented to the membership at the annual meeting, via email, and on our website.
Nominees are approved by the membership at our annual meeting which is held during the second half of May each year. In accordance with the club’s bylaws, “members shall be invited to nominate other candidates by petition – the petition to have at least twenty signatures of regular club members. Nominations shall be closed at the end of the annual meeting.”
Following the annual meeting, the election is held. Each Personal membership is allowed a single vote. Only the primary member receives the election email. Voting is conducted electronically during a three week period in June of each year.
