Hawaii Organization CE Club Coordinator (Jon Young) Site visits/field trips (various) Career shadowing (Taka Kimura) Guest speakers (Eric Young) UH campus visit (Jon Young) Service projects (Jon Young) Design Contest (Mark Rau) End of year gathering (vacant) T-shirts (Jon Young) Fund raising (Jon Young) Newsletter (Jon Young)
CE Club Coordinator Represents Hawaii with ASCE National Represents the club at local activities Promotes the clubs Leads the planning effort Any thing else that is required to make the clubs a success.
Role of the Lead Engineer Commitment: 2 club meetings per month Attend end of year gathering Do monthly report which will be incorporated into the ASCE Outreach committee report. Get report and photos for monthly newsletter Coordinate with school Fundraise
Role of the Lead Engineer Attend 3 planning meetings: End of the year (late April) – Final details for end of year gathering – Discuss the past year – Discuss plans for next year Before school starts (mid-July) – Confirm plans for the year Winter Break (late December) – Progress to date – Refinements
Role of the Faculty Advisor The faculty advisor needs to be at the meetings. It is also important that the faculty advisor be engaged in the activities that we do as a club. The students need someone on campus that they can turn to for advice. The faculty advisor needs to encourage the students to participate in the planned activities. The faculty advisor needs to make sure that Thank you notes are sent. The faculty advisor needs to ensure that the students do the report of the meeting and other activities in a timely manner.
Site Visits/Field Trips Everyone needs to look for field trips. It would be good if all clubs did the same field trip, but that does not preclude clubs from doing excursions on their own. The lead person would change depending on the field trip. If more than one school attends at a time (most likely scenario), need to coordinate the field trip. Need to keep database of the field trip, company, company contact, schools attended
Career Shadowing Everyone needs to look for companies to participate. There is a guideline for companies to follow. Once a company has been paired with a club, the club leader or the faculty advisor will coordinate with the company. Need to keep a database of: Companies contacted and contact person Date, company and club for each event
Guest Speakers Everyone needs to look for guest speakers. For the club, need to keep track of: Persons contacted Speaker info: Name, contact info, high school, college, brief bio Speaking engagement and brief description of presentation. Club leaders will work with school to determine topics and will schedule speakers.
UH Campus Visit Coordinate available dates with the UH. Coordinate with club leaders and we may need to have more than one school visit. Develop campus visit schedule.
Service Projects The clubs will be invited to join the UH ASCE Student Chapter on their service projects: Work with Student Chapter on their schedule Inform club leaders of projects Get head count of participants from club leaders Inform Student Chapter of participants Clubs may do their own service projects.
Design Contest Plan contest Get Judges Too much to explain on a couple of slides For consideration: Different contest every year – very difficult to execute Same contest – similar to PBB Contest
End of Year Gathering Set date, time and place – get consensus among clubs. Reserve room Secure equipment needed for the event Find volunteers Make arrangements for lunch Set budget Goal is for the event to have basically the same agenda each year.
T-shirts Get t-shirt design entries from each school Get vote from club leaders and faculty advisors Once design is select, get the following from club leaders: -Color shirt and ink -Orders -Money Place t-shirt order Pick-up and distribute t-shirts to club leader
Common Storage Area We hope to have an outreach website and Facebook page. However, we still need a less public place to save shared files. Discussion Points: Suggestions: Google Docs; Dropbox Available to Club Leaders and Faculty Advisors Directory structure Filename convention
Fund Raising The clubs are part of ASCE, which is a non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible Club finances will be kept by the CE Club Coordinator Each club will need to be self-funded (suggest the idea of engineering companies in the neighborhood funding the club) Each club will handle it owns expenses All clubs will contribute to the end of year gathering based on a per person cost
FinancialRecords All donations will be made to ASCE All expenses will be reimbursed CE Club Coordinator will keep a separate account for each club Reports will be issued monthly All requests for donations must be given to the CE Club Coordinator. The CE Club Coordinator will keep a master list to avoid clubs asking the same companies for donation.
