The start of spring (on the calendar anyhow) and the SEAPAX fiscal year is a good time to think about new ways to get involved with our group. An important and enjoyable way to help is by joining a working committee and/or taking on a special job. Our Grants committee is well underway, and we need your help in other areas too. SEAPAX especially needs folks for the following:
Events: organizes and publicizes SEAPAX events, social and topical or any combination thereof. This includes regular potlucks, pub nights and eats out venues; the annual picnic and holiday party; arranging presentations or speakers for these events; planning new events like outings, community service, recreation, fundraisers, etc. We might want to split the committee into social and program subgroups.
NEW: Communications: For the newsletter, we are seeking a new editor as well as contributing writers. The SEAPAX e-newsletter is published approximately bimonthly, and is posted on our website. New web & news content is welcomed year round. Also needed is at least one point person to take charge of publicizing SEAPAX events and outreach efforts as needed.
Regional RPCV Campout 2009: This year SEAPAX is hosting the annual summer Western Regional Campout for RPCV groups. A dedicated committee is needed to organize the event. Aileen Ly and Scott Ramos have already stepped forward to lead the effort and look forward to your active participation.
Fundraising: Working with Jennifer Samnick, this committee organizes and promotes annual sales of RPCV calendars. Also, it plans and carries out other new fundraising projects.
To join a committee, or for more information, please send an email to the board.
