SCIENCES ALUMNI ASSOCIATION ANNUAL ELECTION OF OFFICERS
for President : Mike Waker
president of the Earth Sciences Alumni Association I believe that the first
item to accomplish is to determine how big we would like the association to
become. The Alumni would need to determine if they desire lots of social
events, affiliation with the FIU Alumni Association, or just maintaining a
loose organization that mainly acts to provide information to the Alumni.
Secondly I feel that the web page should be the main focus of the board.
It should contain contact information, news, a list of and access to Alumni
publications, and maybe a jobs board.
Alumni Association should become as big as its members would like, but remain
easy for those tasked with keeping it going. The idea should be to create
something that can keep going, but remain flexible as interest wanes or grows
over the years so that it does not end up like many of the other geologic
organizations in Miami.
for Vice President : Lynn Yuhr
a new organization, I think it would be important to network with members
and develop an understanding of their collective vision for the group. I
personally would like to see a stronger alliance built between the academic,
government and private sectors of our earth science community at a local and
state level. This alliance should facilitate the sharing of ideas and information
that affects us all from a research or applied point of view.
