Please Join Us for Our Annual Meeting June 10, 2014 at 5:30 PM at Brasserie Montmartre, 626 SW Park Ave, Portland, OR 97205!
Over an informal happy hour we will recap the past year’s events, the Planning Committee’s future plans for the Club, and speak with anyone wanting to take on a more active role in the Portland Club. We hope anyone who is interested in volunteering can attend our upcoming get together (and/or contact us via email). Please also attend if you are unable to volunteer with the club, but would like to get together for a casual happy hour! Evite to follow.
Call for Volunteers
To maintain our current schedule of events (and hopefully improve upon it) we appeal to anyone who is interested in volunteering with the Mount Holyoke Alumnae Club of Portland to please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org). As the club is still a young, evolving organization, here are some questions and suggestions that may help you decide whether you would like to support the club in a more active role:
Would you be interested in having a leadership role in the club where you plan events and work closely with other Alums and the Alumnae Association to determine the trajectory of the club (and have approximately an hour each week you could spare)? You might be interested in joining the Planning Committee.
Do you wish the club was doing totally different events, and heading in a totally different direction? We bet you have great ideas, you should join the Planning Committee and take on a leadership position.
Are you far too busy to consider a week-to-week or month-to-month commitment, but would love to organize a stand-alone event, like a hike, a networking event, or a cultural outing? That would be great, the Planning Committee would love to help you organize that event.
Would you be interested in hosting a potluck, book club, or tea in your home? The club is always looking for low-cost meeting spaces.
Are you great with email and social media? Please help us improve our communications systems!
Some of the suggested activities that the Portland Club, with more volunteer support, would be thrilled to engage in are: inviting a speaker from Mount Holyoke to Portland for a lecture and reception; organizing more career-oriented events; participating in more volunteer activities; supporting current local students by sending them care packages; improving our website and communications outreach; and organizing group outings to area cultural activities.
