News and Updates

Hey everybody,

We've got a lot going on so here's the latest:

Groovefest Theme and Call for Artists
We will be having a brief meeting tomorrow (Thursday February 12th) at 7pm in the Sooner Room of the Union to vote on the theme for Groovefest and finalize our call for artists so that we can start publicizing that this weekend and get those fliers out ASAP.

COSO (Council of Student Organizations) Meeting
Anyone interested in taking on a leadership role in Amnesty next year should try to attend the COSO meeting tomorrow from 5-7pm in the Associates and Regents Room of the Union. It is mandatory for student organizations who want funding from UOSA (which is our main source of funds!). They will be talking about the budget process for getting funding from the school, among other important logistical things.

Valentine's Day Fundraiser
Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to help with this fundraiser, it looks like it's going to be great! We will start setting up at 11am so if you want to be part of the set up crew show up then and I might even make you breakfast. Anyone bringing things to sell should try to arrive between 1 and 1:30 so we can have all the tables set up by 2. If anyone has extra folding tables or tablecloths and could lend them for the day, we could use a few more. We have some craft supplies for DIY valentines but if anyone has extra glue/paint/paper etc and would like to donate we could use more of that as well.

High School Visits
We got a last minute invitation to give a presentation at Norman High School today. Will and I talked to a group of about 25 students about Amnesty and invited them to come to our events and start a chapter of their own if they're interested. A couple of students from the Young Democrats and Global Awareness clubs asked if we would be willing to also give presentations to their groups, which usually meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If anyone is interesed in coordinating these visits let me know.

As always, email/call/text me if you have any questions.
