What’s Happening?

Hello SRCC Members!

First Meeting Recap:

For those of you who missed the first meeting, we had an introduction of the club and some of our officers, we did some fun activities, gave away a couple of prizes, and started talking about projects for this semester

Next Meeting:

Our next meeting is Tuesday, January 16th at 7 pm in 103 Osmond.  There will be more opportunities to win SRCC gear and we will begin to work on projects for the semester.  Our officers hold regular office hours every semester and office hours will begin next week.

On-Site Coordinator (OSC) Training:

Are you interested in a leadership role with the Red Cross Club at the blood drives?  On-Site Coordinators are student trained volunteers that supervise and delegate roles to volunteers for an hour of the blood drives.  Training sessions for On-Site Coordinators will begin in late August/early September.  You would only have to attend ONE of these training sessions.  There will be other options for training dates and times later in the semester.  If you have any questions about what an OSC does or the process of becoming an OSC, come to a training session or email David at mpl5288@psu.edu.

Current OSC Update (Please READ):

This semester we will be implementing the new system with Greek Life.  The sponsoring Greek orgs for each drive will receive a copy of the excel spreadsheet to have participating members sign up on.  These volunteers will be used solely as recruiters and there will be limited slots for each org varying based on size/goal of the drive.  IF you are running low on regular volunteers, you can pull recruiters from these lists when they show up to volunteer.  To sign in the recruiters for Greek orgs, just initial by their names on the sheet when they show up.  Still explain what they are to do and send them to a heavy traffic area to recruit.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email David at mpl5288@psu.edu.
