Newsletter #3: New Project Officers have joined!
ENACTUS THIS WEEK
New faces are here! This week, over 25 new Project Officers were added to the team. They were all assigned to projects based on their preferences and are ready to begin making an impact.
THE CUP SOLUTION is launching the website, sharing an advertisement post on the Enactus Facebook page and we'll hopefully be visiting a women’s shelter next week.
CULINARY TALES started to pin down more specific goals in relation to the two main projects we hoped to focus on this semester - to push recruitment and to launch a cookbook. Their tasks over the upcoming week mostly involve recruitment marketing by reaching out to those who work closely with refugees. They didn’t set specific goals last week but we did decide on trying to get a new project management system up and running to manage the progress of tasks over the semester. As an alternative to Trello, which was not as effective for our team last semester, we’ve set up a spreadsheet as a working document to update tasks and track their weekly progress.
