Down to Earth has been working for some time to put together an executive committee who would be made up of many smaller committees to work on various areas of the group. At this time we have identified the following areas: Financial, Speakers, Sunshine (this is the group that works on welcoming new members, sending cards when kids are sick in the hospital, etc...) and Website. We have tried to meet the first 30 mins before our regularly scheduled meeting, but it has not given us enough time to really get organized. So we need one, longer organizational meeting to get things figured out. After that, we feel that 6-6:30 on regular meeting nights will be sufficient.
So we are calling all volunteers. If you are interested in sitting on at least one of these committees then please let us know. We also want to invite our new Oshkosh Special Needs Parent Coalition members who would like to be involved, as well. We are proposing that we have this big planning meeting on Friday, January 20th, at 8:30 am at the Oshkosh Perkins on 9th Street. We know this might be hard for those who work at that time. If you are interested and the meeting conflicts with your work schedule, please let me know a good time that would work for you ASAP.
There are still open spots if people have other ideas.
We look forward to hearing from you soon! Thanks! Julie
