They also exchange ideas, network, and receive leadership training.

Attendance at Club Council is required by one representative from each Jamestown Campus and North County Center club, and more than one absence per semester may result in club funds being frozen or restricted. Jamestown Campus clubs attend Club Council in the Lenna Theatre (HULT 142) at noon. North County clubs attend via distance learning.
