As many of you know, our little chapter that Mike, Kristi, both Marks, and others got off the ground has a history of meeting all the goals set by the University of Miami Alumni Association. In order to keep with that tradition, we need a few volunteers. We are looking for board members for the 2012-2013 year. When a few volunteers are coupled with those of us who return from ’11-’12, we’ll be able to keep the jobs small and easy.
There is a wide variety both in types of work and in work load. Some roles plan one little event a year. Others have several ~weekly responsibilities. We’ve already had a couple of volunteers in a couple of areas.
- I’d like us to have two I.bis volunteers: maybe one “home” and one “away” so those people would only be responsible for the sign in sheets and decorations for half of the season. Four of the game times are already set. I’d also like to see us gather for one basketball game and one baseball game.
- One person volunteered to manage our facebook group, so we can create a position for that.
- Other changes/suggestions are welcome, too, of course.
Plan for Fall
We also have a little planning work to get ready for the fall season. We have successfully planned the entire fall in one conference call over the last few years. I think that will work again.
If you are interested in any of the positions (see the ’11-’12 board listed below), please email me, Lori Luza, firstname.lastname@example.org , with the roles you’d like to consider.
Finally, if you have suggestions for activities for the year, send those, too! Some of our best ideas come from members.
And, just for fun: there is a Google calendar of all our games that you can subscribe to. Preview it here:
So, who’s with us? 😉
