One Month In!

posted Mar 14, 2013, 10:53 AM by Ags Cabrillo   [ updated Feb 25, 2014, 4:36 PM ]

Congratulations!  You have hit (and surpassed) the one month mark for this semester.  We have already had several successful AGS events, including tabling and an AWESOME bakesale, and we have started to build relationships with other members.

We encourage everyone to attend the meetings on Wednesday because it is a way to get to know your fellow honor society peers, be updated on upcoming AGS events and volunteer opportunities, and to learn from guest speakers. You also get an hour of community service.

I would also like to let everyone know that most of the executive board will be leaving Cabrillo after this semester and we will need people to take over.  To increase your chances at being elected for next semester, you may become an assistant to one of the board members. Besides Treasurer, Secretary, and VP of Community Service, all spots will be open.  If you're interested check out the Executive Board page and contact them directly.

Now just a few friendly reminders of upcoming events:

  • AGS Scholarship Applications are due April 16th at 5PM and you WILL need a letter of recommendation (so get on that!)
    • you can find the application here 

Hours Tracking Sheet

posted Feb 14, 2013, 4:21 PM by Ags Cabrillo

As some of you may have noticed, there is a new "Downloadable" available on our left sidebar titled "Hour Tracking Sheet."  As it says on the sheet, it is for you to record and keep track of your own hours.  This does not need to be turned in, it is just to keep track of what you've done this semester. The membership director will still have your hours logged on the AGS community service hours spreadsheet.
