Volunteer this August

August is a very busy month for GEO. We can do everything very well when we do it together!

Here are some things you can get involved with:

* Packing Party on Thursday, August 13th at 5pm. There will be food, conversation and hundreds of folders to prepare for the GEO orientations fast approaching! Let’s get ready together!


* Orientations We know GEO members are friendly. We need YOU to help handout t-shirts, buttons and folders at one (or more!) of the many GEO orientations this month!

You DO NOT need to know a lot about the GEO or our contract. There will be people at each orientation who do. Please sign up! http://bit.ly/1PbeK7r.

Members last January at orientations. We need plenty more for August!
