The Independent Clubs Association, HKUSU is an administrative body that collaborates the effort of its fellow Independent Clubs. It is a mediating body between the 21 Independent Clubs and HKUSU. Besides, ICA is also responsible for the preparation of Registration Day, which aims at promoting the affiliated clubs to freshmen.
On March 10, 1952, an Extraordinary General Meeting was called to adopt a revised Union Constitution. The meeting assumed the official title of "The Hong Kong University Students' Union" and adopted a more definite central structure as a basis for student organization in the University. ICA was established in the meeting, with the representation on the Union Council. This serves to be the earliest official record of ICA. With 16 affiliated clubs in total, ICA by then had only two posts, the President and the Secretary.
Until now, ICA has 21 affiliated clubs. With clubs involving in different areas, including international affairs, interest groups, religious and social services, ICA is characterized by its large variety. Every year, they provide the students of HKU with a fruitful life. Together with the 21 Independent Clubs, each with a different mission and vision, ICA strives to bring togetherness that can help all the Independent Clubs to reach new heights.
