Call For MIT Board Volunteers / Annual Elections

Annual Board Elections:  Our Club forms a nominations committee in the March/April timeframe each year - alumni interested in elected volunteer positions should contact Al Cisar, President-Elect.

The MIT Club of South Texas is looking for alumni who would like to volunteer in the following areas:  Committee members/chairs, Board members, or Club officers.  A lot of volunteers just start by showing up at board meetings to help out, and then later serve as Committee members, Committee Chairs, Board members, or Board Officers.  We always pair new volunteers with a seasoned volunteer on a specific event / activity, so new volunteers get through the learning curve quickly.
