First Year Council

        The Shop With a Bulldawg First Year Council works in conjunction with the Executive Board and Committee members in performing preparations for the Shop With a Bulldawg event. First Year Council provides an opportunity for members to learn how a non-profit organization functions and become leaders among their peers. It is an excellent chance for members to become more involved with Shop With a Bulldawg and Athens-Clarke County community.
