On Nov 4, 2013 the IEEE SCV Graduates of the Last Decade held their Volunteer Information Evening at LinkedIn which brings in a number of organizations from the local San Francisco Bay Area to talk about their organizations. Each organization is given 5 minutes to present, and after the event they set up a booth in which the attendees can gather more information on, and volunteer with their organizations. These are the slides for FIRST.
