Recap of first meeting 09/28/2011
Hello Everyone. Thanks a bunch to those who came to our first club meeting of the year!
Here's a recap for those who couldn't attend can to get caught up with the rest of us in the club. Basically, the officers introduced themselves, then William, our president, gave brief overview of the objectives of the club - meeting other interested BioE/pre-med students and opportunities for internships/research with various faculty members. Afterward, the officers passed around a survey so that they could better gauge and get feedback on what other ideas the members wish the club to full-fill. We also discussed designing a new t-shirt for the upcoming school year as well as informing that they are open positions that have to be filled. These include: fundraising chair, and public relations. We will be nominating individuals during our next meeting which will be next week @ 5:30pm(the exact date either wednesday or thursday will be announced) @ the bannan engineering lob. Towards the end, we talked about upcoming events such as SACNAS ( Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science) where we will be building an arm, and illustrating to elementary/middle school kids about the mechanics behind how the arm works. It will take place on Saturday, October 29 @ San Jose Convention Center. Finally we ended our announcements with some fun ice-breaker activities and some delicious Chinese Food!!!!
Have a great week!
