Throughout the semester, the officers may establish planning committees for particular events. These will be open to volunteers, and will also be announced by e-mail. Finally, if there is something in particular that you would like to help out with (regardless of committee existence), or if you just have a great idea, feel free to contact any of the WinECE officers.
