Or perhaps you'd like to join a committee..

Community Relations/Publicity Committee
The GATHER Community Relations committee deals with reaching out to other organizations, as well as exposing GATHER to the greater community in Houston, at Rice, even across the nation to other Universities and groups. We put together campaigns to get the word out about GATHER events, as well as coordinating with outside groups to get the best out of GATHER while networking with others. We also coordinate the input of the colleges, keeping the college governments up-to-date on GATHER events and integrating GATHER with the rest of the university. If you are good with people and want to make sure that GATHER meshes with the rest of the university and the gay community for years to come, feel free to e-mail us at gather@rice.edu.

Programming Committee
We're the ones that make your dreams come true (as long as you're dreaming of creating programs and making sure they happen). We have Coming Out Day programs, such as a speaker, a movie screening and a display in Farnsworth. For Trans Rememberance Day, we have a clothesline project and a talk/discussion planned. We will also be helping with the AIDS quilt on World AIDS Day. If there is some event you've always dreamed of having at Rice, this is the committee for you! there's plenty to do, so if youre looking to get involved programming is where its at. Contact us at gather@rice.edu.

Resources Committee
BOOKS, MOVIES, FLYERS, BANNERS, oh my. If you are interested in spreading the word about GATHER or having some input on the resouces that we aquire for the center you should be on the Resources/Publicity committee. This semester we will be working on finalizing the GATHER Resouce Acquisitions, creating a database of all GLBTQA resouces on campus, publicizing GATHER events on campus through banners and flyers, and promoting GATHER through press releases when necessary. We need anyone that's willing to help from colleges all across campus, as well as people who live on and off campus. If you are interested e-mail gather@rice.edu.
