Our broad project areas are as follows:
Campus Energy Efficiency
Competitions (eg Recyclemania)
We've started collecting information and establishing initial contacts for a few of these projects.
|Email out to different parties involved in each project, and start formulating a timeline/set of goals for each. Some of them are heavily dependent on initial fact-finding (e.g. : Paperless curriculum, where we still have to figure out whether it's a viable idea). Since all of our members (except the 2 vice chairs and the chair) are new, we also plan to share our previous information and tactics with them.|
