Clubs are organized by individuals. In many instances, an organizer’s company supports their employee (e.g. allowing the organizer to work on club activities during work time, offering their venue for events, providing resources for club needs). NTEN’s official relationship is with the individual organizer and if the organizer leaves their current company, the club would remain with that person.

We strongly encourage clubs to have a team of 1-4 Supporting organizers. However, we require that there be only one Lead organizer to serve as the main point of contact and the face of each club. Organizers should not be from the same organization or sector. We’ve found that clubs with diverse teams are more sustainable.
