First CCS General Meeting of 2009–Friday Jan. 23rd

We are hosting our first gathering of the year and would love, especially, to meet any newbies to the program and anyone interested in getting involved this semester and beyond. Last Fall three committees were formed:

social/fundraising- members are tasked with planning happy hours and retreats and coming up with creative ways to get PLUS students together. They also look out for the organization’s bottom line. Contact Melissa Ehlinger if you have an interest in becoming a member.

outreach- this committee will orient the student organization to a mission broader than the program itself. Members will plan a service learning trip and coordinate in-town volunteer opportunities. Contact Matthew Mourning at to join in this effort.

education/Lunch & Learn series- this committee, under the leadership of Nicole McCall, has already lured many inspiring planners and urbanists to UNO’s campus. Check out the Lunch & Learn page for upcoming events. Contact Nicole at for more information and to get invovled.

Now all we need is YOU! Urban Studies and Planning majors with a devotion to rebuilding New Orleans and a desire to advance the cause of the Crescent City Shapers.

Join Us! We will be hosting a representative NORA, who will have an eye out for ambitious Shapers looking for internship opportunities.


Where: Garage Pizza, 220 South Robertson in the CBD.

When: Friday, January 23rd @ 5:30pm

Garage’s amazing pizza will be provided!
