Opening events are key to any successful Israel group. Before bringing speakers, hosting film screenings and creating other events, it is important to find students who can help organize and plan these things. General interest meetings, sometimes called GIMs, are a great way to get to know the pro-Israel students on a given campus.
CAMERA’s Emet for Israel group at SUNY Binghamton, Binghamton University Zionist Organization (BUZO) just had its first general interest meeting (GIM)! The board sported their CAMERA funded “I Stand with Israel” t-shirts, which were a huge hit. These shirts are made in Israel through nucampaign.org.
Binghamton University CAMERA Intern and President of BUZO, Arianne Storch said, “Our GIM tonight was very successful! 23 people came and 13 of those people are interested in joining our general board.”
Looks like it will be an exciting year for BUZO!
