General body meeting: double service hours!

Our next general body meeting is this Sunday, February 20, at 6pm in Stevenson 4309. The meeting will feature an appearance of a former and much beloved ARC President. (Guess who?) In addition, if you bring a friend who has not been to a meeting before, both you and your friend get double service hours: 1 instead of 0.5! Come enjoy pizza, hang out, and learn how you can run for a board member position and become more involved with ARC.

Check your service hours!

Greetings, fellow Red Cross-ers! With board elections coming up in just over a month, it might be a good idea to check your service hours. To do so, click on the link to the left that says Check Service Hours, which is listed under the subheading Members. If you have never changed your password, the default login is the following:

User name: usually your last name + first initial (i.e. John Doe’s login is doej) **
Password: password (all lowercase)

** Unfortunately, your user name might differ from this convention, because (1) someone else has the same last name + first initial, or (2) the board member who created your account used a different convention. If you cannot log in, please email Liwei Jiang at liwei.jiang@vanderbilt.edu to receive your user name and password. We are sorry for the confusion.

It might be a good idea to log in and change your password.

If you believe that the number of hours we have on file for you is incorrect, just send an email to Nila Manandhar at nila.manandhar@vanderbilt.edu.
