Call for Sustainability Co-Chair
Are you interested in contributing your skills/talent/build community/network to grow the Oregon ITE Sustainability subcommittee? We are looking for a co-chair and volunteers, and you have the perfect chance to help shape this sub-committee. Please get in touch with Maggie Lin or Vanitha Murthy to discuss becoming a Co-chair or becoming a committee member.
How much time does this take?
AS much as you'd like! We are currently meeting quarterly, and virtually! The typical committee volunteers spend an hour or more in the initial planning stages to organize group meetings and events, with a few more hours of commitment as the event draws closer. Sometimes the volunteers would also work directly with the sub-committee members or with other Oregon ITE Committee Chairs, thus taking on new opportunities with other sub-committees.
What would we do?
Volunteers can help with any of the following: assist with organizing a big triennial sustainability workshop or a fundraiser event to raise awareness regarding sustainability or use funds for use for a student scholarship; recruit a luncheon speaker specializing in transportation sustainability; organize/plan a technical site visit; help with website work; assist with building web-based sustainability resources for Oregon ITE members, or help organize fun events such as a bike tour or an in-person social event for sustainability committee members; organize an event around particular days as “World Earth Day” or “Zero Emissions Day. Please join us in creating a vibrant committee where we all can learn from each other and grow together
Oregon ITE Student Chapter Grants
