Dinner and Beverage Blast
Guest Speaker: You!
As our December meeting approaches on Tuesday, December 16th at 6:30 p.m., the SBE Chapter 37 Board would like to wish you all a Happy Holiday season! The past year has seen the Chapter come back to life with several strong meetings in the last few months, a newly elected Board, and the potential for several strong meetings in the quickly approaching new year.
We had an opportunity to pair with SMPTE for their Holiday Party but, after much consideration, decided to keep our meeting separate. We thank SMPTE for the offer and since many members of SBE are members of SMPTE as well we hope that in the future the two local organizations can work together on meetings and events of benefit to both groups.
The primary goal for the December meeting is to meet and talk with as many of you as we can to see where YOU want the Chapter to go. Everything about the Chapter is on the table for discussion however there are some topics that take center stage. Among those items, meeting locations, days, times, food availability or not and, most of all, meeting topics. As those who have heard Kent say at previous meetings say, we want this to be a Chapter with a wide cross section of Engineers in attendance and participating.
As National has announced a goal of “working to attract and serve those who work in the technical broadcast and media related positions,” we also want to work to bring people in those associated fields to our meetings as well. One of the top goals of the new Board was to grow the meeting attendance and member activity within the Chapter. The question is how do we do that and continue to further our education through meeting programs? The answer is in the members of the Chapter.
Please make time to come to the December meeting. It’s an informal “Dinner and Beverage Blast.” Meet the board and let your voice be heard.
The Chapter will pay for soft drinks and appetizers but you should be prepared to pay for your dinner and any other expenses. Also, PLEASE RSVP by Friday December 12th to firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many hungry engineers to expect!
