Math Club meetings will be Wednesdays starting February 8, 12:50-1:40pm, in
E1 102. Of those who responded to the doodle, Wednesdays had the most Yes's
and the least No's.

Some key math club events this semester:

   - Menger Day, including poster competition and the plenary speaker
   Philip Holmes' (Princeton) talk to the math club
   - Planning for Illinois Section of the MAA (ISMAA) conference (papers,
   posters, problem competition)
   - Spring barbecue
   - Career fair and summer research application strategies.

Add your email address to
http://math.iit.edu/mailman/listinfo/mathclub-members. Future messages will
be sent to the math club list but not ugrads at math.iit.edu.
On the first meeting, the members will elect officers. These should
certainly include President, Vice-President, and Treasurer, but you can
also opt to include Events Coordinator and Competitions and Conferences
Coordinator (or similar).

Main planning duties are conducted by the president and vice-president in
consultation with me, with planning details delegated to other officers as
appropriate or as available. The Treasurer interacts with the Finance
Board, and makes sure the club has applied for funds, and keeps track of

If you cannot be present at the 2/8 meeting but want to run for one of
these positions, submit to me a brief statement of candidacy, which I will
project at the election at the appropriate time. In the past there have
been few enough candidates that we have elected slates by acclamation.

Thank you,
Robert Ellis
