Welcome New Executive Reps!

Good evening Alums!
Our election nominators for two open positions closed on Friday. We had two parties nominated and decided to forego a formal vote. After discussing with the nominated parties, our new First Year Representative is Chris Bentley.

My name is Chris Bentley, and I am very interested in the 1st Year Representative position for AmeriCorps Alums. When I started with AmeriCorps, I didn't know my community or the needs within it. It was largely through my opportunities in AmeriCorps that I became aware of how I could help, and through undertaking projects and volunteering at various organizations, I grew as a person. Now, I would like to give back to this organization by acting as a mentor so that everyone involved can be fully successful and experience the exhilarating feeling that comes with service!

Chris will help us with the following over the rest of the semester:
a)   Serve as liaison between 1st year SPEA students and AmeriCorps Alums
b)   Directly assist the Professional Development Coordinator with planning and implementing events
c)   Directly assist the Service Coordinator with planning and implementing events
d) Directly assist the Outreach Coordinator with AmeriCorps outreach and membership recruitment

We also had an opening for a First Year Social Chair and Lindsi Lara-Perez and Evan Davies submitted a nomination for co-representatives. They will help us this year to:
a)   Plan and organize AmeriCorps Alums social events
b)   Be responsible for sending event announcements to AmeriCorps Alums through the listserv
c)   Send announcements on the AmeriCorps Alums Facebook page
d) Send announcements on the AmeriCorps Alums blog
e)   Distribute flyers and information for social events throughout Bloomington

Lindsi and Evan are first-year MPA students who both served two years with City Year and the YMCA, respectively.  They are both excited about joining AmeriCorps Alums Bloomington and furthering the group's mission here at SPEA.

Thanks so much for being a part of AmeriCorps Alums Bloomington and we look forward to an exciting semester!

Enjoy the last night of the weekend,
