Committee

The Imperial College Dance Club (ICDC) Committee consists of elected student volunteers who handle the administration and organisational duties required to run the dance club. The committee includes 16 positions, each with distinct responsibilities related to managing club finances, organizing events, coordinating practices and competitions, promoting the club, and more. This page outlines the primary administrative duties for each committee role, providing an overview of the committee structure and operations. With over 250 fee-paying members, ICDC is one of the largest student societies at Imperial, requiring substantial behind-the-scenes coordination by the committee to function effectively.

The committee is structured into several sections to distribute responsibilities and share the workload evenly among members. The President and Team Captains provide overall leadership and direction. The Vice Presidents oversee major functions like events, publicity, and competitions. The operations roles keep the club running through tasks like treasury, secretarial work, web management, beginner training and costuming.

All committee members are responsible for fulfilling their rota duties, including charging for classes, cleaning the practice venue, guaranteeing a safe and positive training environment and being a good public face and first point of contact for people interested in the club.
