Steps to Chartering a Club
When enough interest is generated in a community activity, the chartering process can begin. If you are part of a group that would like to benefit from the perks of becoming a Chartered Club over an Interest Group, contact the Lifestyle Director to set up a meeting and go over the process.

The first step to becoming a chartered club is to review these documents before you meet with the Lifestyle Director:
Steps to Chartering (View)
The group will hold a public organizational meeting (meet & greet) open to all DWPV residents. Once a date and time has been determined and confirmed, you will collaborate with the Lifestyle Director to make marketing material and an invitation to the meeting which will be sent out to all DWPV residents.
After the initial meeting, the Interim Officers (voted by a majority of those present at initial meeting) will hold an additional organizational meeting and will invite all residents that attended the initial meeting and those who expressed a written desire to participate to the Interim Officer(s). At this meeting, the following items are to be addressed:
- Finalize the Application for Charter (Form CC-1)
- Sign the Initial Membership Roster (Form CC-2).
- Finalize Club Bylaws (Form CC-3)
- Finalize Policies and Procedures (if applicable)
- Answer all questions regarding the proposed club and its activities.
Submit completed Policies and Procedures (if applicable) along with meeting minutes, Forms CC-1, CC-2, CC-3 to the Lifestyle Director to review. Once confirmed by the Lifestyle Director, the paperwork will be taken to the Clubs and Activities Committee for review. Final approval will be made by the Board of Directors. If a club officer is not present, the Lifestyle Director will notify them of the committee's decision.
