Letter from the President:
Dear MIT Club of Wisconsin Community,
What a momentous year! This fall alone we had the pleasure of visiting the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, having a private lecture by Dr. Mike Sussman about Electric Eels, and had an a-maize-ing time at Treinen Farms. The MIT Club of Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula continues to serve over 500 alumni throughout the region. Our activities serve MIT alumni, current students, and friends of the club.
As the newly appointed President in August 2015, I would like to thank our former President Kathreen Thome for an outstanding two years of leadership. Dr. Thome has demonstrated leadership and expanded the reaches of the Club to include more programs around the state. I would also like to welcome the new members to the Board. You can learn more about the board members on the website.
There are many opportunities for you to support the MIT Club of Wisconsin. You can meet and interview prospective students in your local community by becoming an Educational Counselor; contact Dr. Anna Shen (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. Seeking short talent or hiring for permanent positions at your company? Contact Allyn Ziegenhagen), who continues to run the MIT WI Career Program.
We also seek your input in contributing ideas and suggestions to improve the programming and functions of the Club by contacting the VP of Programming, Allyn Ziegenhagen. As you may have noticed, we have begun to collaborate with other clubs in the state who have similar interests or events that may interest you. As a result, you will see invitations to events on behalf of other groups who host. Enjoy!
Our next event is the Toast to IAP at Yahara Bay Distillery on January 21 from 6:30 - 9:00 PM. We hope you can join for the distillery tour and games!
Lastly, thank you to all current members of the MIT Club of Wisconsin who support our community. If you have not yet renewed membership for 2016, you may do so on the website. Happy holidays and hope for snow soon!
