Region 5 has been very connected and working hard to get more volunteers signed up for the various committees and to have a better presence on social media.
Region 5 will be putting together a Google doc to get demographic information from Region 5 members to start a Member Spotlight social media post (weekly or twice a week).
Regarding social media: we will be adding more content so that we are scheduling things to go out once a day. Things to add: US and Canadian holidays, creating a poll to gauge interest in certain potential drive-in locations and what’s happening on campuses in Region 5.
New volunteers that have joined committees are: Kristin Bruno, Drew University on the Social Media Committee and Kathryn Vieillard, Yale University, will be contributing to the newsletter. They will be joining other new volunteers: Stephen Leddy, The College of New Jersey, who will be on the elections, awards and scholarship committee; and John Murphy, WCSU, on the Outreach and Recruitment Committee.
