Meeting Recap January 31, 2021

Thanks to those of you who made it to this week’s meeting. We hope you’re staying warm this weekend! Please read on for our club updates:

New Information:

Meeting Activity: Service

  • We brainstormed service projects for the semester. Meals on Wheels is a recurring event that you could get involved in if you are available (see the information below). Zooniverse events are also likely to appear during more club service meetings. Billy will send a poll out soon to find good times for service projects during the week.
  • We discussed types of service:
    • Direct service: directly helps the intended audience
    • Indirect service: not coming into direct contact with the audience assisted (for example, by fundraising)
    • Advocacy: using your voice to speak up for others
      • Potential advocacy projects for our club could be: criminal defense, civil rights, body image
    • Research: finding new information

Upcoming Events:

  • Elections: We will begin nominations for 2021-22 Circle K Officers at our next meeting on Sunday, February 7. You must be present at the meeting next week or the week after if you want to be nominated for an elected position of President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, or Bulletin Editor (positions listed are in the order in which we will conduct elections). If you want to be nominated for more than one position, start by being nominated for the highest position you may want to hold. After nominations, you will give a short speech for the position you are running for before we vote. Feel free to contact any current officers with questions about their positions.
