Central Carolina CC - Spring 2013

Spring is here and the chapter is very busy with projects coming to a close and many preparing for SLC in April. Membership has doubled since last year and more continue to trickle in as we get closer to the March deadline. The chapter has done a great job creating a buzz around campus and promoting the club.

The fall saw a great effort by the chapter to demonstrate to the community its ability to lead and make a difference. Several community service projects took place involving work with several organizations in an effort to supply food for the winter. Not only did the chapter participate by providing resources the chapter also oversaw the projects by organizing the event which included close to a dozen organizations.

The chapter hosted its annual spaghetti dinner in January for a total of $1800 dollars to help fund upcoming events such as SLC. This is one of the largest fundraisers the chapter holds during the year. The next fundraiser on the docket is a pancake breakfast just before SLC. The chapter throughout the year will do raffles that include tickets to UNC basketball games, 50/50, and many fun prizes that seem to get the campus excited.

Other projects this spring include “The Gambit”, “Earth Day Fair” and “The Next Step”, projects that help promote the goals of the chapter to support community service and free enterprise.  The chapter also provides support to other organizations on campus as well as participating in major chapter projects. These events include Education Celebration that took place at the WB Wicker Center for continuing education and career readiness as well as the upcoming Career Fair at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center. The chapter has become the top choice for the campus when resources are limited and help is needed.

The new semester has also seen the members very busy getting ready for SLC. A lot of excitement when members returned from Winter Tip-Off at Wake Tech CC, where information was overflowing for SLC and NCL to get the chapter motivated. Deciding what events to compete in, whom to team up with, and writing reports. The CCCC chapter will take its largest delegation to date to Charlotte. Our chapter looks forward to a great experience in April and meeting others who help to make NCPBL one of the best in the country.
