Next semester, I hope to continue some of the work that Timur did this previous year in order to make Engineering Students Without Borders a more visible organization on grounds. As social chair, I hope to have semi-frequent social events outside meetings in order to keep our members involved and build our own community. These smaller events could include tailgates at the lawn rooms, trick-or-treating on the lawn, and various other ideas. Additionally, I would like to try to strengthen the tradition of one large social event per semester, such as an apple picking trip or camping trip. Hopefully the other Exec members will have new, unique ideas that we can try to implement to keep ESWB fun and enjoyable as the year progresses.
Additionally, as outreach chair, I want to strengthen ESWB’s ties with other organizations such as Nursing Students Without Borders, Global Brigades (health, water, etc), and other similar organization. I think that by pooling our resources and working together we can cause a greater change and provide more abundant and diverse opportunities for our members.
I hope to get new members at the beginning of the year, and through activities (both social and with the Events Chair) keep them returning to meetings so the numbers do not dwindle dramatically as the year progresses. This includes going to the activity fairs and other events. All of the planning will be checked with the Exec Board to ensure that there are no conflicts and they are at optimal times.
