To compete with the Gentlemen’s Club and expand NCFM’s reach, I am starting a group called KSU Men. To become a student organization, I need to have 15 signatures, student IDs, the backing of a student advisor and the approval of a board. Still wandering in the fog on this one. So far, I made a poster to advertise the group and made a few phone calls to learn about relevant policies.

I interview Paul Elam on starting a men’s group, and ask him some side questions about the MHRM as a whole.

Spoke to NCFM Campus Coordinator Chris Thompson for advising. He suggested targeting fraternities for signatures, and offered me the following links on the kind of backlash to expect. It documents his own harsh experiences out in the world. [1][2][3]

Drafted a constitution derived from Chris Thompson’s chapter bylaws and collected all needed documentation from KSU to start obtaining signatures.

I got some posters up asking for volunteers to act as officers, and wandered around “The Cubes,” a set of cubicles where student organizations work.
