A Message from the Secretary-Treasurer

Georgia ITE Members and Friends,

With all the activities coming up over the next few weeks, I wanted to send another e-blast to remind you about some of them.

The primary item of focus is 2020's first Monthly Meeting at Mary Macs next week on Thursday, February 20. Registration is currently at capacity for the space, and we have a waiting list. If you are unable to attend, please reach out to Chris Maddox ([email protected]) so we can accommodate as many people from our waiting list as possible. We are not gauranteeing space for walk-ups and strongly recommend using the waitlist. The WAITING LIST is available through the event registration page for those that would like added.

We also have multiple volunteer opportunities that are this weekend being supported by our Engineering Outreach committee. This Friday, February 21 is the Gwinnett Regional Science, Engineering + Innovation Fair in Duluth, GA at the Infinite Energy Center. Then on Saturday, February 22, volunteers are needed for the ASCE Toothpick Bridge Event at the Fernbank Science Center.
