SiD.10 Planning Teams

 

We're looking for alums and friends of SiD to join us in helping to plan our 10th Anniversary! Read below for brief descriptions of the different planning teams we envision, and reach out to Emily Zonder (ezonder@umich.edu) if you'd like to join in!

Outreach - Help us to spread the word internally through the U-M communities (Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint) to increase understanding about SiD’s mission and work with Detroit.  Help us to spread the word externally in local (national?) media outlets to increase understanding about SiD’s mission and work with Detroit.  Email Stephen Ward at smward@umich.edu to get involved.

Logistics - Help coordinate housing, travel, childcare, and developing creative and cost-effective strategies to feed folks during the weekend, among other things.  Email Marion Van Dam at mariongb@umich.edu to get involved. 

Programming - Help us to design the various programming aspects of the weekend, including the main public event and celebration on Saturday night.  Workshops? Discussions? Email Emily Zonder at ezonder@umich.edu to get involved. 

Fundraising - We need help with three main fundraising goals for SiD.10: 1) we want to raise some scholarship money for our alumni with less resources so they can afford to attend and participate in SiD.10. 2) We want to develop a specific fundraising focus to benefit one of SiD’s strategic community partners. 3) We want those who attend SiD.10 to leave the weekend with a commitment to continuing their support for SiD over the long-haul.   Email Craig Regester at regester@umich.edu to get involved.
