The Greater Kansas City Post Kicks Off a New Student Chapter
Members of the Greater Kansas City Post traveled to Manhattan, KS on January 28 to hold a Kick Off Event for a new student chapter of the Society at Kansas State University. The event was well attended, 22 students from several Departments representing three different colleges at the university. President Ann Ewy presented the history of SAME and an overview of the Greater Kansas City Post. Past President Matt Metcalf then shared some pointers on what to expect in industry as well as some do’s and don’ts for new grads both in the job hunt and once the job is landed.
The Post’s goals for the Student Chapter are to help set expectations for students as they search for jobs, to facilitate networking with Industry professionals, and to build a pipeline of new Young Members for the Post who already have an appreciation for the Society. In order to accomplish those goals, plans are underway for students to attend the 2014 Industry Day in Kansas City.
