All ICC Agendas, Minutes, and Attachments

Welcome new and returning students to De Anza for Spring 2021! Happy New Year and warm greetings from the Inter-Club Council (ICC). For anyone who doesn’t know, the Inter-Club Council is an umbrella organization representing cultural, educational, honorary, philanthropic, religious, and social interests here at De Anza. 

The clubs at De Anza work tirelessly to make our college experience less transitory. They are a great way to meet amazing and motivated people, get involved in the community, and learn leadership skills. In an ordinary quarter, we highly encourage participating in club activities, attending meetings, and creating events.

This quarter will be another very strange one for the community that ICC helps build at De Anza. Due to the COVID-19 virus and the current college closure, De Anza’s campus will be virtual for this quarter, with most classes delivered entirely online. The ICC supports California’s fight to flatten the curve and discourages clubs from holding meetings or events for Winter 2021. This does not mean that our clubs need to be inactive. On the contrary, we believe that this is the time for Clubs to unleash their creativity and use the technology at their disposal to foster a sense of community - even during this isolation. You can Meet the Clubs on YouTube.

ICC Meetings

The ICC is focused on regaining a sense of normalcy during this time, so we are excited to return to regular bi-weekly meetings. Which will be held every other Wednesday from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM via Zoom. The link will be emailed to clubs at the start of the quarter. Our dates for meetings are: 4/21, 5/5, 5/19, 6/2. Please email the ICC Secretary at iccsecretary@fhda.edu if you cannot find the Zoom Link. All clubs are required to send a representative and attendance will be mandatory.


In an effort to make meetings more helpful and training based, each meeting will consist of officer training given by an ICC Chair. Here is the playlist of past training videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLf-cwsaE6I3JU6jdoW7rBeG__i-Kanlq0. New videos will be uploaded here for all De Anza students.

How to Stay an Active Club This Quarter

To stay an active club off probation this quarter, all clubs must meet these minimum requirements:

  1. Make sure to have someone present for the entirety of Club Day on April 16th from 4-5:30 PM PST
  2. Make sure to have a representative at all ICC Meetings this quarter
  3. Have a meeting a month and send proof of the meeting including a picture of the Zoom window to the ICC Secretary and ICC Chair of Club Affairs, this adds up to a total of 3 meetings during the quarter
  4. Reply to the Club Responsiveness Check conducted by the Chair of Club Affairs after the penultimate meeting of the quarter.

Failure to fulfill one of these requirements will result in the club being placed on probation, if a club has two probations, they become inactive. You can read more about this in the ICC Code.

For all clubs that are having difficulty during COVID, you can opt to become inactive during this period and resume after we return to campus. The process to do this is to fill out this form: https://forms.gle/zGTp3J2wM2i5bTxE9. To reactivate, you will have to go through the process as a new club creation, but the ICC will work with your club to make this as seamless as possible.

Foothill-De Anza Student Leadership Conference

The Foothill-De Anza Student Leadership Conference 2021 is the first-ever district-wide leadership conference being hosted by De Anza’s Office of College Life in partnership with De Anza’s Inter-Club Council (ICC), Mentors@De Anza Program, De Anza Associated Student Body (DASB), Honors Program, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), Public Policy School (PPS), Associated Students of Foothill College (ASFC), Mellon Scholars Program, Vasconcellos Institute for Democracy in Action (VIDA), Student Service Center (SSC), and many others! It will be held on Friday, March 5th, 2021 from 3:30 - 6 PM.

The aim of the first FHDA SLC is to spotlight the incredible leaders, rebels, warriors, mentors, and advocates that come out of Foothill and De Anza College. Each year we pick 12-16 speakers to give lectures and hold panels on a diverse range of topics to help their fellow leaders grow and learn. This conference aims to connect the incoming leaders at FHDA with the knowledge gained by outgoing leaders and foster greater collaboration between the programs at FHDA helmed by students. This year's conference will be opened by De Anza President Dr. Lloyd Holmes and Foothill President Thúy Thị Nguyễn. We are so happy that you'll be part of this journey! At the end of the conference, we will be presenting several student leaders with Leadership awards, so make sure to stay till the end.
