from MISA club prez - your invitation to tomorrow's 1st meeting!

Want to know what it's really like to actually do MIS for a living? Want to hear it from someone who actually is? Want to go see it happening at major local powerhouses like Cisco, PwC, Lockheed Martin, etc? The MIS club, aka MISA, aka MIS Association, is how you do all that AND have fun meeting fellow students that will be your professional colleagues in Silicon Valley next year!

Everybody's welcome. Even if you haven't taken a single MIS course yet. You don't even have to be an MIS student, for Pete's sake. Just interested in how we leverage technology to do business better/faster/smarter. And who's wouldn't be, really? I'm serious!

Tomorrow (Thursday, Aug 27) is the first meeting (free) from 6-7:30pm in BBC 322, and everyone (that means you) is welcome as noted by the new club president, Nate, in his message below. Please take a look at the great lineup he and his team have put together for the coming month & semester and be there tomorrow to get started. Highly recommended!

From Nate:

Fellow MIS Students,

Allow me to welcome you to the Fall 2015 semester. I want to extend an invitation to all of the Management Information Systems Association’s (MISA) technical talks, career introductions, social events, and member meetings this semester. In the next month or so, we’ll be clearing up some confusion around the careers available to MIS graduates, helping members work on their resumes, and touring Cisco, PwC, and Lockheed Martin campuses. We meet on Thursday evenings from 6-7:30pm in BBC 322. If you want to stay up to date with what MISA has planned, subscribe to our mailing list and you’ll receive monthly updates on upcoming events, and periodic emails about internships and other job opportunities. You can also find us on Facebook and LinkedIn.

Upcoming MISA Events:

8/27 – Intros/Icebreaker
9/3 – Grab a bite with the club, alumni, and faculty at San Pedro Square
9/10 – Hear speakers answer the question “What is MIS”, with a chance to speak with them afterwards
9/17 – Introduction to the field of Systems and Application Analysis by professionals
9/24 – Revamp your resume with help from the Career Center and MISA alumni
9/25 – Tour Cisco’s campus with MISA
9/26 – Volunteer with MISA and other LCOB clubs at Veggielution

Most of our events will be open to any interested student, but if you are interested in invitations to off-campus corporate tours and access to free Microsoft software through DreamSpark, you will need to become a dues-paying member. If you’d like to learn more about the club, you’ll find us tabling in the BBC courtyard from 9:00am-2:30pm Monday through Thursday until September 3rd. Hope to see you out there, and have a good semester.
