The last meeting of the Human Services Club was held Dec. 2, but it’s only a holiday hiatus and club members will return next semester rejuvenated and ready to continue with service.
We’re wishing everyone safe and happy holidays!
We looked forward to the future as club members agreed on three goals for 2011: enhancing visibility, securing a speaker(s), gaining more meeting participation. After one of the most well attended meetings in recent memory early in the year, the meeting participation gradually dipped. We have to find ways to better involve more members.
We also attended a wonderful conference this year and laid the groundwork for as many as two fundraisers next semester.
Many thanks to all members – active and inactive. We encourage everyone to continue to push themselves in the coming semester to go beyond their usual level of participation. We all benefit in the end!
See y’all at the next meeting Jan. 20. @ 5 p.m.

Human Services in the News
Club Member Sarah May summarized news reports about “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” hitting snags in the legislature. See more about a recent failure to repeal the policy.
The club came to consensus that we will start with the cell phone fundraiser early next semester, and the fish fry in April.
Club Members Jenny Stovall and Maury Smith volunteered to form the visibility committee – a group charged with enhancing the club’s presence on the campus. Jenny and Maury suggested updating the HSE information board and making flyers to advertise meetings. We look forward to their efforts!
