MANDATORY Meeting Next week!

13 03 2013

We will be having our next meeting next Tuesday! It will be MANDATORY for all of you who signed up for the Build Day on April 6. If you do not attend or email us beforehand if you can’t make it, you will be removed from the list so someone on the wait list will be able to go. If you aren’t sure if you’re on the list or wait list, feel free to email us and we’ll let you know!

At our meeting, we will have a homeowner who has gone through the Habitat process speak to us about their experiences and how Habitat has helped them. We will also be talking more about volunteering as well as information for the build day!

At our meeting we talked about ideas for the next meeting. We will be having a Habitat homeowner talk to us about their Habitat experience and their struggles prior.

We will also have information about the build day so it will be mandatory if you want to do the build day!

Meeting Minutes 2/5/13

5 02 2013

Thanks to everyone who came to the meeting today!
Here’s what we covered:

  • What Habitat For Humanity is & does
  • What a Campus Chapter Does

Both of the topics above are explained under “About” on the website.

We also covered…

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Our biggest event at the moment is a group build day where 15 CU students will be able to get their own build day on April 6. We have 14 people signed up but if you’re interested in this, please let us know and we’ll put you on a wait-list!
  • There are also opportunities at the ReStore! The ReStore sells new and gently used home items for very cheap and the proceeds go directly to building homes in our community. They are always looking for volunteers!

Our goal this semester is to get more members and get the momentum going. Our job as a Campus Chapter is to advocate, fundraise, build, and educate so we would love some feedback on what events we could do this semester to gain members as well as help out Habitat!

The next meeting will probably be in a few weeks, hopefully before the next set of exams for everyone. We’ll send out more info as that approaches!

As always, email us with any questions, ideas, etc!
