Teach a class this Spring
The application deadline for spring classes is January 18.  What are your skills?  What have you learned?  What are you passionate about?  Share it!  Explore a topic with others, invite a friend to teach, or organize a group of people to teach together.  Whatever the format, whatever the subject, Exco is for everyone and everything!  Fill out the application on our website: http://excotc.org/content/facilitate-a-class

We want your 2 cents
Please take a few moments to fill out our Fall 2009 Exco evaluation.  Let us know what you liked and didn't like, what we could do better next time, and what you'd love to see happen in the future!  Help us make EXCO better! http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MR28V75

Help Exco grow in Cedar-Riverside
There is an exciting new initiative to build Exco's presence in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood.  We are bringing a number of organizations and partners to the table to make this happen and we need your help!  Contact [email protected] to get involved.

Exco Winter Carnival
Save the date: February 13!  We're planning a day of winter skill shares and activities to celebrate the winter and the start of the new session of Exco classes.  Do you have something you could share?  Think along the lines of a winter clothing swap, medallion hunt, ice hockey, winter survival skill share, winter biking skill share, etc.  Are you a snow sculptor, expert snowball thrower, love to make snow angels?  Come and share your winter talents, whatever they may be!  Contact [email protected] to propose your ideas.

Class brainstorm on Exco forums
Could you teach or do you know someone who could teach a class on the history of community gardening/farming or auto maintenance?  These classes have been proposed on the Exco forums, but need someone to teach them!  Login to www.excotc.org and post on the forums to join the discussion and propose the classes that you'd like to see this spring.
