EDUCATION COMMITTEE

This is a reminder of the new ad hoc Student Committee and the Student Professional Development session at the SIVB meeting this year. Our President, Paul Price, has appointed an ad hoc Student Committee and Scott Stewart will convene this newly formed committee for the first time at the 2007 meeting, immediately following the Student professional development session on Sunday, June 10. The initial agenda will include the definition of a structure, mission, and goals for the ad hoc Student Committee. Anyone who is interested in participating is encouraged to attend. A second result has been the generation of a proposal by Randy Santiano to establish an online mentoring program. The Board of Directors has unanimously and enthusiastically endorsed this concept. It is expected that the online mentoring program will be introduced at the 2007 annual meeting. Come to the Sunday evening Student Professional Development Session to learn more about it!
