EC Meeting Minutes: September 13, 2010
Reflections Projections (UIUC)
Get Rid of Prizes
Figure out what orgs are doing/Events
We will do protein folding again for our volunteer work as that is a good way to get membership participation.
The ACM will probably have to sign up for OrgSync, albeit we probably won't use it.
This is because Blackboard will no longer support organizations; only classes.
One month away. (October 15-17) Get Ready!!!
Students can no longer use NDSU vans, vehicles, etc. due to new policies.
Adam can, though because he is a staff member.
VMWare, Facebook, and many more will have representatives speaking at the conference.
We have to send an email to all ACM Members about the UIUC trip.
Describe what UIUC is, there will be a sign up sheet in IACC 162.
Ask if they are interested in driving, there will be a driver sign up as well.
The System Admin has to remove past members who aren't here.
Upcoming Email System:
Instead of having one email, NDSU is changing the email system so that undergraduate students will be firstname.lastname@example.org and faculty will be email@example.com...
This will come into effect some time next year.
Nathan will talk to Dr. Dean about contacting companies for talks/panels.
Possibly have cabinet a little less random this year.
Corporate Liason has been removed after a majority vote.
Positions: Administer of Propaganda, Historian, Office Manager
Keylist: We plan to have the users of the keylist give their ID as collateral to get the key.
Special Interest Groups:
SigComp: Meeting is next week, either Monday or Tuesday.
Requirements for DigiKey: Junior or Senior and a computer science related major.
Training for a couple weeks before the competition.
ACM Competition 2-3 weeks after DigiKey
A possibility would be to have Dr. Ubhaya give a talk about dynamic programming.
Adam may do a talk on bash scripting or something about linux. Maybe an install party?
