First Meeting of Spring 2010

January 19, 2010

Hello all and welcome back!

I hope everyone enjoyed their break and found time to rest, because there is much to look forward to this semester.

First Meeting & Jimmy No. 43Wednesday, January 27th in Puck (295 Lafayette Street) at 5:30p in the Jersey Conference room. This meeting is very important to be more active in the WFPA, because we will be voting on  leadership and meeting topics. For those interested, we are going to go to Jimmy No. 43’s afterwards for dinner and/or drinks.

Leadership Positions: Please come to the meeting prepared to speak a little bit on the work you’ve done, the work you’d like to see and your hoped involvement with WFPA. No worries, this is very informal! Please look at officer tab for descriptions.

Other IMPORTANT positions

  • Blog writers – those committed to writing regular posts
  • Meeting facilitators – those committed to organizing the discussion sessions at our meetings, getting people to come speak to us, etc
  • Steinhardt Liaison – only need one; will be a voice between the school
  • Special events – will elaborate below, but need those interested in working on WATER EVENT and IPSA CONFERENCE

Jimmy No. 43:  Lets go to Jimmy’s after the meeting! Probably around 6:30p. Jimmy’s has the Slow Food’s seal of approval for sustainable eating and drinking. Just foods hold a lot of their events there. Check it out! www.jimmysno43.com
