This Week: Your First Meeting and Fundraising

Share/Save

ThisWeek

Your First Meeting

Item

1) Get People There - Sure it seems obvious, but advertising your first meeting is the most important step! Use flyers, chalk, a table, announcements, etc.

2) Have Fun - Ice breaker games may sound cheesy, but they work. Anything to get people talking to each other is a plus.

3) Inspire - You want people to leave the first meeting feeling excited to get involved. Talk about the history of your SSA group and how it's a part of a larger movement of SSA groups across the country.

Fundraising

Item

Fundraising is one of the most important activities that your group can engage in. It is also one of the most overlooked activities by many groups.

If your group has some money in the bank, it makes it much easier to pull off bigger, more fun, and more creative events!

There are many funding avenues available to student groups. We've created a listing of the most popular ideas and activities you can engage in.

9/11 Day of Service

Item

The 9/11 Day of Service is one of the largest recognized service days in the country, and is celebrated widely by communities and campuses alike.

This is also a particularly good service day to run an interfaith project, and work with a variety of religious organizations on your campus.

Don't Let Your Group Die!

Item

Without proper promotion, groups fail to recruit new members and keep current ones interested, and simply fade away (it's really depressing).

Some officers shudder at the thought of promotion, but our guide is intended to make promotion as easy as can be.
