Dues Structure:

Student Association (SA) Report

  • Dylan Merrigan, vice president of the Student Association, indicated that the SA is submitting a proposal to the Graduate Student Association for funding.
  • There are now 53 clubs on campus. Alumni can, and do, participate in clubs.
  • Brett raised the desire to help alumni understand their role as alumni within student activities, and said this was a good means of alumni/student interaction.

Graduate Student Association (GSA) Report

Voting Mechanism

  • Carol Lynn reported that ISD has a good program on banweb. In order to use it, we need to obtain Banner numbers for all board members from the Registrars Office. Carol Lynn has put in a request to the Registrar.
  • Brett has donated $10 to create the Web domain nmtechalumni.com. He hasn’t found a voting form yet, but hopes to create a page that Google will accept and that would allow for voting and discussion.
  • Earl suggested that it might be possible to get a student or class to take this on as a project, or to set up a competition.
  • Carol Lynn will continue to pursue this with the Registrar and ISD.

49ers

  • There are 14 people signed up for both the MRO and the EMRTC tours.
  • Many people, especially locals and members of the rugby and soccer clubs, just turn up.
