Business Careers In Entertainment Club
The University of Montana
Whereas we believe that a group of college students interested in exploring business careers in the entertainment industry should organize for mutual benefit, we hereby establish a collegiate chapter of the Business Careers in Entertainment Association (BCEA) which shall be known as the Business Careers in Entertainment Club at The University of Montana.
ARTICLE I - NAME
Business Careers in Entertainment Club (BCEC)
ARTICLE II - PURPOSE
"Our mission is to provide all undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students, regardless of academic degree, with the essential career development mind-set and hands-on experience vital to obtain professional entertainment networking connections, internships, and job opportunities within both the creative and business ends of the entertainment industry."
ARTICLE III - MEMBERSHIP
Only currently registered undergraduate students may be active members in a registered student organization at The University of Montana. Only active members may vote or hold office.
The BCEC has no size limitation on the number of members. Members must be enthusiastic towards finding careers in the business end of the entertainment industry.
We will not haze according to Montana State Law; we will not restrict membership based upon race, color, national origin, religion, sex, physical and mental disability, medical condition (cancer-related or genetic characteristics), ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship or status as a covered veteran (special disabled veteran, Vietnam-era veteran or any other veteran who served on active duty during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized).
To maintain membership in BCEC, a student must attend all bi-weekly meetings and must participate in one event per semester, and pay an annual fee of $25 towards club purposes. Also, Any student who signed up to work or participate in any event and does not perform said duties and responsibilities asked of him will have their membership terminated. All members must participate in at least one volunteer community outreach event.
In a club year any member who has three club meeting absences will be placed on a club probationary period for the rest of the club year. If said member misses another club meeting without notification their membership will be terminated. Members will be notified of their dismissal from the club and their email address will be eliminated from the database. Dismissed members will be required to re-pay club dues if they wish to be reinstated as members
Any elected official who is not performing his duties can be demoted by a vote of the executive board.

Call out Meetings will be held at least twice a year. Each call out meeting will be open to non-members, so that they can have a chance to view the club and its members.

These meetings will be organized and ran by the president and executive vice president of the club.
