Hi Everyone,

   We will be holding a meeting tomorrow night at 7:00 in Votey 211.   
We will have two professional members attending, Terry Barret and  
Margaret McMorrow.  They are interested to learn about our chapter and  
our Nicaragua project.  Terry has volunteered to be our technical lead  
for the project.  She has a BSME (RPI'93) and has worked for a couple  
years in an engineering consulting firm before joining IBM and working  
for some years in equipment engineering and microlithography.  From  
'03-'05 she tried something different, studying Tibetan language at  
UVa for six months and then two years in India, Nepal, and Tibet, with  
monks and nuns at monastic colleges and monasteries.  Now she's back  
at IBM working in optical engineering, simulating and characterizing  
image sensor chips for digital cameras.
   Margaret is is hoping to get involved more with the professional  
chapter in Vermont as well.  She plans on attending the International  
Conference with us.

   At tomorrow's meeting we will discuss and register for the  
International Conference.  We can go to the computer lab after the  
meeting and register online together, depending on our funding limit.   
Matt -  how was the meeting with SGA?  What do they cover?  Do we need  
to speak to Dan Harvey in the dean's office?
   Andy & Shanta - Is Mandar available to come to give a short talk on  
soils as a guest speaker?  Do you have his email, I could write him a  
formal invitation.
   Please continue to do your own research on solar-powered water  
pumps and projects similar to ours.

   Jess - Is there a schedule for when we are able to volunteer at the  
Teddy Bear factory to fundraise?
    Matt - Have we determined when to order the bagels/ breakfast  
sandwiches?  Were you able to speak to Feel Good?

See you tomorrow!
