We did elections. Our officers for Spring 2019 are:

We talked about doing a fundraiser that people can sponsor an animal at the humane society and also buy baked goods.
Field trip: We talked about going to a horse rescue or/and a wolf sanctuary.
Speakers: We decided on Berkshine Bird Sanctuary, Northern Country Wildlife, and Brian. All speakers are subject to change and are not set in stone. A person from BBS will be coming as a speaker on February 11th at 3-4pm.
Volunteering: We want to be more active in our communities. We talked about volunteering to do river cleanup(s), with Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, and other places undecided.
We also talked about working with other clubs and supporting each other and doing events with other clubs as well as re branding the club. We talked about open up our definition of the club and who the clubs helps as well as our name. We also talked about designs for a club t-shirt, as well as cleaning up our board in the campus center and putting more signs around campus as well as having our speakers in more public areas to draw more people in.
February 11th speaker Berkshire Bird Sanctuary and wildlife
Peter and his daughter came from Berkshire Bird Sanctuary and wildlife to tell us about what they and how we/they can help. Very amazing speaker and helped shed light for those that want a career in this field. Reached our souls and helped our outlook and action efforts.
Field trip: UPDATE MEET AT HVCC Clocktower at 10:30 and drive to Berkshire Bird Sanctuary. We will stay until 1 or 2. People are welcome to stay later if they wish.
We changed our name! It is now Animal Outreach Conservation vs. Animal Outreach club. That way we can encompass conservation, wildlife, livestock, domestic, and all other types of animals and advocate for them.
Fundraiser: We are going to work with Mohawk Hudson and have people sponsor an animal. But when they sponsor they get like a gift card or something. Details are still being worked out!
T-shirts are also being worked on by our great Vice President!
