UC Rally Committee Weekly Agenda

General Announcements

Spring 2023 – April 19th

How do I Join?

Sign up here! It’s as easy as that! Then, join our Slack to stay connected and get updates on everything the committee does. You’ll also need to pay dues if you haven’t already. The sign-up form is so we know who you are and to make sure you get put on the official committee email list so you don’t miss any announcements. If you have any questions related to being a member of the Rally Committee, reach out to our Vice Chair of Membership Ariana at ucrc.membership@gmail.com.

You can join the Rally Committee up until April 1st this semester! So don’t be worried if you don’t have the chance this week. 

Slack Community Guidelines

By joining the committee slack, you are agreeing to follow our community guidelines, which can be read here! If you have any questions, please reach out to our Vice Chair of Communications Steve at ucrc.communications@gmail.com

Paying for Dues and a Rugby!

In order to fully join the Committee and join us for our springtime shenanigans, you’ll need to pay your dues and purchase a rugby*! Dues are $25 for the spring. You can pay via venmo to @ucrctreasurer22.. You can also pay through either cash or check made out to “ASUC/UC Rally Committee” emailing Wendy at ucrc.treasurer@gmail.com to coordinate a time to meet.

*In a typical semester, we would also require the purchase of an official rugby ($60) when joining. Since we currently do not have any rugbies in inventory due to supply-chain issues, this will not be a requirement for the spring semester. We have some reserves in every size (XS through 3X) available to borrow so if you want to do a job (e.g. banner guard or flag waving) that requires one, you still can!

Let Us Know How We’re Doing!
