2015-2016 Goals Statement

Goals for the Current Term:

1) Redesign Club Website

Because of the increasing importance of on-line communication, the student chapter has decided to fund its own website. The website independent of the university and department so it may be changed more readily. The club was successful in this task.

2) Increase Member Participation

During the last term, the officers (especially the president) carried the weight in terms of club participation. This academic year the officers focused on rebuilding the chapter into more effective committees. Additionally, reasons for club participation (enhanced chances for scholarships, professional development) were emphasized. The club continues to build on this goal.
