                                  Name: Adrianne Wheeler
                                    Position: President
                                       Zone: Admin
                                   Month: September 2005
 What activities have you been working over the past month?
   Working with the Communication Zone leader on adopting a new format for the UIUC zone
    report based off the Regional Template.
   Creating a OGSMR for the chapter/ long range plan

 What were the outcomes of each activity?
   The new template will be used starting next month
   The OGSMR/ Long range plan will be developed at the last Eboard meeting of the semester.
    The goals that each officer submitted at the summer meeting will be reviewed and discussed.
    The uncompleted goals will be put into OGSMR format for the upcoming semester. Then from
    here on out instead of just listing our chapter goals at the summer meeting we will develop the
    chapter OGSMR for the year at the summer meeting, which occurs prior to RLC.

 What activities do you have planned for the next month?
   Next month is AE month so I will be encouraging my AE chair to do as much as time and
    midterms will allow.
   FRC is next month and we plan on having 30 members in attendance, 50% of which are NEW
    NSBE members- each one bring one.
   High school Visitation is also next month so the PPCI chair is working on getting 20-30 students
    down here on campus for the weekend of Nov 4th

 Do you have any problems, questions, or concerns regarding chapter operations?
          There was a lot of confusion on who should send their zone reports to region IV counter
            parts. For instance if the secretary sends her whole ZONE report to the R4 secretary
            does the R4 secretary distribute that to her zone (IS, PR chairperson) since the
            secretary’s report contains all those parts? Or should the IS chair just send his/her report
            to the R4 IS chair? At the moment we have it set that each zone leader sends their report
            to the R4 Zone leaders and each officer send his/ her individual report to his/her R4
            counterpart.

 Are there any academic commitments (i.e. exams, review sessions, tutorials, etc.) that you have
  over the next two weeks that will require that you receive extra assistance from other
  individuals? If so, please explain what help is needed and who will be needed.
   Test Oct 19and 16

 What topics were discussed at your zone meeting?
   FRC
            As a Zone we decided that 9 of our most active Junior Executive Members (freshmen
            only) will be fully sponsored to attend FRC. Full sponsorship includes registration,
            travel, and hotel. We also decided that the E-board members that attended RLC will get
            their registration for FRC paid for by the chapter.

     E-board communication
             Lately there have been some issues with communicating through email. Most of this
             resulted from people trying to deal with disagreements through email as opposed to face
             to face. At the meeting the air was cleared and there are no longer any issues with this.

 How do these topics affect the over zone and/or chapter?
   By sponsoring our most active JEB members to attend the conference we feel that this will build
    the future leadership of our chapter as well as keep our freshmen involved. The year I was on
    JEB there were 6 of us and we were all active and sponsored to attend FRC. Two years later all
    6 of us are key players on the executive board.
   Dealing with the email matter in a face-to-face manner quickly resolved any underlying tensions
    that were beginning to build amongst the CEB. In order to be a fully functional board we must
    all get along and deal with conflict.

 What in your zone would you like to improve?
Everything seems to be smooth sailing right now.

Highlights of the chapter this month
     General Body: two students from our chapter were recently accepted to participate in the
      WaterCampws undergraduate research program. And two students that represent our chapter
      were chosen as NSBE International Ambassadors!
     Communications: the weekly newsletter, S.L.A.M, continues to reflect the chapter’s plan to run
      things according to the National Directives.
     Programs: 2nd annual Active Resume Workshop was another success. Active Resume
      workshops were put into place last year when the chapter was not getting a lot of participation in
      traditional resume workshops. The active workshop is held in a computer lab and geared more

      don’t’s in PowerPoint fashion.
     VP: The junior executive board is flourishing with 12-14 members and is currently broken into
      groups and working on projects that will be implemented into the society’s programs/ events
      upon completion.

What activities have you been working over the past month?

   A Walk for Education, Sweetest Day/ Halloween fundraisers.
   Resume Workshop
   ACS event
   Women in Transition Center
   Charity Golf Tournament
   Lunch-N-Learn
   NSBE Jr.
   High School Visitation
   Meeting with the other groups for EOH on Thursday October 6th to discuss the competition coming
up in the Spring semester. Also, I have been talking with Ford and Motorola in order to try to schedule
Tech Talks in early November.


What were the outcomes of each activities?

Some events have not occurred

22 people in attendance for resume workshop, the workshop went 1.5 hours over the projected time, The
presenter Anthony Buffum wants to do more with NSBE

Contacted the local American Cancer Society to participate for an ACS event during the month of
October. The event will be going to Walmart (in Savoy) and passing out literature about Breast Cancer.

Contacted Women in Transition Center to perform a service to them. The service will be cooking a
dinner for the women and their children.

Created a group to attend the Charity Golf Tournament (hosted by Engineering Council).

Contacted Angela Clark about Lunch-N-Learn scheduled in October

Not a lot of students responded to the letters that were sent out for the high school visitation, therefore,
making the NSBE Jr. meeting not as successful as planned. The main problem was that the weather was
extreme the day that the meeting was scheduled, which could be the reason as to why no students showed
up. Some supportive Collegiate NSBE members showed up, however, and the main contact for
University High School. Another meeting could be planned to set up NSBE Jr. again, but I think that
HSV should be the focus right now.

Drafts of the Funding Request letters have been typed up but none have been sent out as of yet. There is
a list of companies that are in consideration in sending out the letters:

Discussing funding for the competition, how we are going to build the robot, and the issues that we had
last year that we can improve on.

Still waiting to hear from Ford and Motorola, however, Tech is going to schedule a meeting with Karmell
so that she can give me the information from the companies that would like to speak with NSBE. She
suggested in the meeting on the 4th that we contact these companies because they are sending her a lot of
messages about coming to the University.

Contact,

As a part of our Pre-College Education Initiative (PCI), the University Of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is sponsoring a High School Visitation
Weekend. The program is to be held from Friday, November 4, 2005 through November 6, 2005.

The Visitation Weekend is geared toward minority students interested in gaining a higher education in
fields related to math, science, or engineering. The purpose of this weekend is to educate the students
about the various fields related to math, science, or engineering. The purpose of this weekend is to
educate the students about the various fields in which they can major, and also to give a comprehensive
view of collegiate life.

In the past, insert company here may have shown NSBE a tremendous amount of support, and we want
to thank you. If not, NSBE is extending preliminary thanks for your support. We believe that with the
help of insert company here, we can continue the success of the NSBE High School Visitation.
Attached is a funding request summarizing the purpose and budget of this semester’s visitation for your
review.

Please feel free to contact us if there are any questions or concerns. I would be happy to speak with you.
Thank you again for all your past support, and thank you in advance for helping make this semester’s
High School Visitation a success.

Sincerely,

Purpose of Program
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is requesting funding for its Fall High School
Visitation. The purpose of this weekend is to give a comprehensive view of collegiate life, and encourage
students to pursue their interest in math, science, and engineering.

Description of Program
The Fall Visitation will be held November 4-6. Applications will be sent out to over 40 Chicago and
Champaign-Urbana high schools. We anticipate over 60 responses. From these applicants, we hope to
choose 40 talented students. During the visitation various roundtable discussion and workshops will be
held on topics such as: college applications, engineering majors, financial aid, and life as a minority
student. We hope that these workshops will not only encourage the students to pursue engineering, but
better prepare them for life at U of I.

Target Group
The target of this visitation is African American high school students who have already shown a strong
academic base, leadership and community involvement, as well as an interest in math, science, or
engineering.

History of the Program
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is requesting funding for its Fall High School
Visitation (HSV). The purpose of this weekend is to give a comprehensive view of collegiate life, and
encourage the students to pursue their interest in math, science, and engineering and related fields. For
the past few years, the High School Visitation has not been successful. However, we hope this year to
repeat the success that NSBE once had with the visitation by having in attendance 20-40 students invited
from the Chicagoland area and local Illinois counties.

Description of Program
The visitation will be held November 4th-6th. Applications will be sent out to around 60 Chicagoland and
local high schools. We anticipate at least 80 responses. From these applicants we hope to choose 20-40
talented students. During the visitation weekend various roundtable discussions and workshops will be
held on topics such as: college applications, engineering majors, financial aid, and life as a minority
student. We hope that these workshops will not only encourage the students to pursue engineering, but
also better prepare them for life at U of I. Below is the tentative schedule for the visitation:

Other Potential Financial Sources
NSBE does plan to hold a fundraiser between now and the date of the visitation to generate more funds.
Hopefully, this effort will produce a significant amount of funds. We will also be inviting other
engineering Registered Society Organizations, such as Society of Women Engineers and the Society of
Hispanic Professional Engineers, to host meals for the students. NSBE as a whole is applying for SORF
funding. The High School Visitation will be included in that funding request. Although we are
considering a number of financial sources, we would highly appreciate assistance from Engineering
Council.
