This constitution is hereby established to develop the cultural and recreational opportunities available to students of Valley College; to facilitate efficient coordination of all campus clubs; to protect and maintain the integrity of campus clubs and to make available to as many students as possible the advantages of club membership."

~Preamble to the Inter-Club Council Constitution

The Inter-Club Council (ICC)  is a governing body made-up of one representative from each chartered Los Angeles Valley College club. It is the voice of clubs on campus. ICC provides a forum for discussion and information exchange about upcoming events, and creates an opportunity for clubs to collaborate and work together.

The purpose of the ICC is to generate and support club-based activities and events that enrich the students of LAVC. The council allows club representatives to vote, offer guidance; seek solutions, and express concerns related to student organizations in LAVC. Meetings are open to the public.

The purpose of the Inter-Club Council of Los Angeles Valley College is to encourage student membership in clubs, and club participation in cultural awareness, student leadership, academic improvement, and increased campus participation.

PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURES

The ASU Executive Council has abbreviated Robert's Rules of Order books available in the Office of Student Life for check. 

What is Parliamentary Procedure?

  • Parliamentary procedure, or parliamentary law, is the code of rules and ethics for working together in groups.
  • Parliamentary law refers to the rules, laws, or regulations of organizations, governing the orderly, expeditious and efficient transaction of business and meetings and conventions. Without rules, there would be injustice and confusion. Hence, it is as necessary to follow the rules of parliamentary law as it is to follow the rules of a ball game or a card game. 

Why is it important?

  • All members have equal rights. 
  • Minority rights must be protected. 
  • Full and free discussion is an essential right. 
  • Use simplest and most direct procedure. 
  • Only one question considered at a time. 
  • Logical precedence governs order of discussion.  
  • Members must be recognized before speaking. 
  • All remarks are directed through the chair. 
  • No member may speak twice to the same question until all others have had an opportunity to speak Members may not question the character or motives of other members. 
  • Members have a right at all times to know what question is before the assembly and what affirmative and negative votes mean.
