IEEE Executive Board,

I hope you are all having a good, productive summer and I look forward 
to working with all of you this coming semester.  I have volunteered to 
take on the recruiting responsibilities, especially among the sophomore 
classes.  I plan by August 30th to have given a short presentation in 
my own fundamental classes about why ECE and CPE students should join 
the IEEE and plan to make presentations in the other fundamental 
courses too.  I plan to handout a brochure at the end of my 
presentation listing the benefits and our web address, and pass a sheet 
out to gather email addresses that want to receive emails from the 
Villanova IEEE.  I like Sean?s idea on 50% subsidy for new student IEEE 
members, I believe this can help attract more members.  Can we send a 
class wide recruiting emails from the IEEE so we contact every ECE CPE 
student from sophomore to senior? 

Looking further into the future, second semester, I would like to make 
some kind of contact with the freshmen engineering class.  I believe 
very few freshmen are even aware of the IEEE and I would like to see 
some freshmen enrollment into the IEEE in the second semester.  I 
believe to keep our branch alive and active we need to start as soon as 
possible with new members so they can learn and become experienced and 
keep our branch very active after we graduate.

A note on the meeting times.  I have no problems with bi-weekly 
meetings just as long as the meetings begin after 5 or later on any 
given day of the week.

Enjoy the rest of you summer everyone and look forward to seeing you 
all at our first meeting of the new semester.

--Evan Nikolich
