A great name shows the purpose of the club and can indicate to potential members if the club is active across UniSA or is campus specific.
Most clubs also include words such as ‘society’ or ‘club’ as part of their name. Here are some other club handles you might like to try: Club, Society, Group, Assembly, Crew, Squad, Team, Troop, Bunch, League, Coalition, Party, Nexus, Collective, Co-op.
USASA will not support clubs that choose to use Association in their title unless they are an Incorporated Association. This is because the use of this word “Association” implies incorporation, meaning that the club is a single legal entity registered with Consumer & Business Services (CBS) with certain rights and legal protections as well as some additional obligations. To find out more about becoming an Incorporated Association please visit the CBS website.
