Our first meeting went pretty well. We attended a regular Green Club meeting at Presentation, and we were happy to see that there are a lot of students club. The club leaders made some announcements and then introduced us. We explained who we are and why we care about sustainability. Then we told them about the Sustainability Decathlon. We briefly went over the ten categories and wrote them on the board. We thought it was a good idea to put the categories on the board because several girls asked questions about them. At the end of the meeting, Ms. Rahmig, the club moderator, asked who was interested in working on the Sustainability Decathlon and several students raised their hands, which was encouraging. We gave her our contact information so that we can stay in communication.
One way of improving our presentation would have to been to include a PowerPoint instead of writing on the board because it would have appeared more professional. We also would have liked to have more time, since the meeting took place during their lunch period, which was pretty short.
Overall, we feel like we were pretty prepared and the meeting went well. We tried to make it as personal as possible, and it seems like there are several students who are interested in participating.
