Tuesday, January 12th, 2016 @ 7pm

  • First meeting of the Spring 2016 Semester
  • We began with some new goals for this semester:
    • We intend to keep meetings at 1 hour or less in length
    • Limit the need for meetings that result in more meetings
    • We hope to have the group rely more on member input
    • Continue building a great atmosphere at our meetings and events!
  • Weekly Youtube Videos
    • Send a video less than 3 minutes long to Anthony to be played at the beginning of our meetings – a variety of topics is encouraged!
  • Introductions of everyone present
  • A brief overview of future events was detailed, but one is also online on our website!
    • i.e. Roller Coaster Competition, Engineering Futures, Initiate Pizza Party, the State Science Fair, and future speakers
  • We collectively wrote up 6 goals for the chapter during this semester:
    • 1) MindSET Award National Conference
    • 2) Moving forward on last semester projects
    • 3) Having around 3 luncheon/lunchtime discussions
    • 4) Increase member participation (Social Activities)
    • 5) Increase member participation in District 11 Conference
    • 6) Increase the initiation percentage
    • 7) Win R.C. Matthews Award
  • We also wrote up a small list of things we would like to see changed:
    • 1) Make membership position information more accessible
    • 2) Add student outreach position to the site
    • 3) Make events more independent and collective, rather than relying on one person’s efforts
    • 4) Expand and organize the structure of committees
    • 5) Tweaking events for the future, or adjusting their frequency
