What else should people know about your meetings? Do you only meet once a month? Do attendees need to be added to an agenda? Is the location hard to find? If attendees need ADA accommodations, whom should they contact?
Meetings are held once a week and both new/returning students are welcome at every meeting. At meetings, we sign in, discuss volunteer opportunities, discuss campus and community events and plan our own campus wide events. We take time to be social, hear news from members, and hear member input. Meetings vary in length depending on the participation, but will not go past 11:50 a.m.
