The Club Program Blackboard Community is a major resource which provides club program content in an electronic format available 24 hours a day. It hosts virtual and digital learning tools, calendar of events, club resources and services, funding and budget request, unique engagement opportunities, and is easy to use. It has sections specifically designed for the Advisor, President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer roles.

The SGA is the governing body of students whose primary responsibility is to advocate for MC students and act as a voice for the collective student community. Each campus has its own SGA and meeting schedule. SGA meetings are open to all students and is a great place to learn about services and other inner workings on campus. Your Student Life Specialist will provide additional details for SGA meetings on your campus. Club members from the Germantown campus must attend both senate meetings of the month to receive funding for their club.

The Club Program Handbook is designed for the formation, running, and governing of student clubs at Montgomery College, and is intended to help student leaders and advisors function on a daily basis. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Student Life Specialist.
