Hello Everybody,

Happy New Year!  I hope everybody had a nice holiday.  I am just getting back into the swing of things here and I wanted to get the next EWB general meeting on people's calendars.  Based on the doodle I send out last month, it looks like Sunday works for most people.  The next Sunday that the executive team was available was the 20th - so two weeks.  I hope this works for folks.  I will send out a more detailed agenda next weekend but the short summary is

1. Project Update
2. Website Update
3. Officer Elections in Feb

Meeting location TBD.  It will still be in Burlington this time, but I will give specifics when I send out the agenda.

Attached are two documents for your review.  The first are the meeting notes from Friday's meeting.  Highlights include:

  1. Program in Nicaragua continues to gain traction.  They have sent us some project ideas and we will be having a conference call with them on Tuesday afternoon to discuss how to move forward.
  2. We are going to register www.ewb-vt.org and get a website set up before next meeting
  3. We are planning on having executive team elections in February.  So if you are interested in participating in the election (running or voting), please attend the January meeting for details.
  4. We will be setting up some working meetings this month to put together presentation materials as well as writing our by-laws (i know... very exciting stuff).  Please let me know if you would like to participate in either of those riveting activities.

The second attachment is document from CII-ASDENIC outlining some programs in Nicaragua that we could work with them on.  So far, the potential looks very good.  However, I encourage you all to review and give us your thoughts (negative or positive) on what they have proposed.

Next month's meeting will be in mid-January. Because I have received some feedback that Friday's are not good for everybody, I am going to send out a Doodle (schedule survey) to everybody to see what days might work better.  Please try to respond within the next week.  We will schedule the meeting when we have heard back.

Thanks to all of you for your participation; past, present and future.  

The EWB Executive Team
