As the Director of the Inter-Club Council (ICC), Noah Wuollet (along with the Inter-Club Council Board) is primarily responsible for overseeing the funding and campus-wide programs of over 70 different student organizations. ICC hosts the Otter Showcase (campus student organization fair) twice a year and their own training initiatives for advisors and student leaders funded by ICC.

ICC is a student organization that promotes club activities and events. Through involvement and leadership in ICC, members of student organizations have the opportunity to engage in advocacy, resource appropriation, networking and professional development. They are funded through the Associated Students (AS) where allocations go to support club and organizational programs throughout the academic year.

This year, the ICC Executive Board has taken on many new responsibilities including giving “How to Start a Club” presentations and helping to process ICC meeting/tabling requests. The ICC chair aims to tackle these new responsibilities and guide the ICC Executive Board through the many changes to ICC. ICC Board members include: Deputy Chair & Treasurer, Kierra Rambunga; Secretary, Allegra Christian Scher; and PR Officer, Anthony Josh Fuentes.

Wuollet’s goals include improving their internal and external communication to their student organizations and the campus about ICC, along with providing an intentional approach in how they transition new club officers and ICC representatives throughout the academic year as follows:

Improving communication/information distribution– In order to foster a more direct line of communication between ICC Clubs and the student body, he will work closely with his officers and advisors to create a pamphlet featuring all active clubs by the spring semester to be handed out at Otter Showcase and other tabling events.

Smoothing transitions between club officers and ICC representatives– ICC aims to make as much information readily available for new club officers and ICC representatives as possible. To achieve this, the ICC chair will facilitate changes to the ICC web page including information on ICC Representatives’ roles being made visible and accessible on the site.

The ICC chair will also assist in facilitating ICC’s Executive Officer Trainings and Club Transition Retreats to ensure as much useful information as possible is passed onto new club officers at key moments of transition (end of both fall and spring semesters).

Needs assessment– ICC began the year by distributing a “needs assessment” to its clubs. The Inter-Club Council Chair aims to use the results of that assessment as a guide to both club and ICC needs throughout the year.

Noah serves on both the AS Executive Board and AS Internal Affairs Board, and Kierra Rambunga, their Deputy Chair and Treasurer, serves on the AS Finance Board.
