  • Talk about site assesemnt trip and on site lab
  • Logo change once we get the new one
  • Supported by 3 main sponsors: Proctor & Gamble, Dow, General Electric. Chapter count may not be accurate as more are approved every week; since UIUC was approved 2 weeks ago, 2 more chapters were approved. Membership count above is based on active members, not mailing list (we have about 240 on that). Although we target members in engineering and science majors, all U of I majors are welcome.
  • First year strategy revolves around establishing SASE as a stable organization, with a focus on development a regular tempo of events and professionalism. This is essential for maintaining members and meeting recruitment target of 100 actives by May 2011. Professional development series is provided by ECS and corporate sponsors. Resume workshop occurred in September. Winning first impressions will happen on Oct. 7 (tomorrow) with P&G. We are currently allotted 1 co-op slot and share 10 internship slots with other SASE chapters, given by GE Aviation. Most of our events are in the planning stages, so our lineup is short for fall semester.
  • If you have questions or want to pass this on to your society’s members, here’s our email.
