by Brennan White
In this first issue
of the SDOB District E US, I would like to introduce myself and the other
students that help to make this possible.
name is Brennan White and I am the Chair of the SDOB. I served as Vice Chair of
the SDOB for two years. In the Louisiana Tech University student section I have
served as: Freshman Representative, ESA Chair, and Vice Chair. Several other
students stepped up and joined the SDOB at the Student Professional Development
Conference in Baton Rouge, LA.
The SDOB Volunteers
Cindy Spangler, University of
Colin Carver, Louisiana Tech University
Jamie Vredenburgh, Texas Tech University
Johnathan Tran, University of Arkansas
Matthew Stallard, Colorado State University
Myles DeRouen, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
Nick Skadberg, Colorado State University
Sung Lee, University of Texas at Dallas
As you can see from
the list above, the SDOB represents students from all across our district.
The SDOB communicates
through weekly updates and a Google Groups page. At SLS in the fall, we will
elect officers and define tasks for those positions.
There are many components of ASME that the typical student
section in our district is missing. Some of the problem is a succession issue.
However, I feel that a large part of the issue is that students are not engaged
by ASME volunteers that know about all ASME has to offer. Well, here we are. We
are students just like you who volunteer our time for the development of ASME
as a society.
In the past, there have been issues with dedicated officers,
unclear goals, and absent leadership.
Our goal for the 2012-2013 school year is make the presence
of the SDOB known, starting with this paper.
