U of I Student Chapter–Last Saturday morning met for breakfast – Super Charged Workshop. The students put up posters and we did social media. We had about 12 students – we were expecting 30. Students did a great job – came up with great ideas regarding issues and problems – assigning roles of board members, responsibilities, etc . Randy Vanderwerf came during lunch and we did a question/answer session with the students.
Ann: Has heard good things back from the students that were there. Felt empowering. Lance, the current President is done at the end of this calendar year. Do we know who the next president will be? Amanda.
Randy: Thought the facilitation looked very professional and looked like the students were well engaged.
Thanks to all who participated .Looks like this was a huge success. They have another event coming up – Billy Nichols will be speaking on what it is to be a new engineer in the water field. Kristin will reach out to Lance & Amanda both - hopefully Greg can be at their January meeting to give them information on WATERCON.
We will need several judges for the Poster Competition. YP Committee to help here.
We need to work on mapping out setup and details for the "career fair”. We want to cater to the right needs. Communications are the pre-conference brochure right after Thanksgiving; rest are by email.
