As the year comes to an end, ITE and it’s members have been busy finishing up projects and preparing presentations. We would like to take this time to recognize some recent achievements of our members.
First, congratulation to our outgoing president Eric Catig for being featured in this month’s ITE Journal! He has an interesting article about building and promoting our ITE chapter here at Cal Poly Pomona, take a look!
Our hard work has payed off, for the first time, ITE Cal Poly Pomona has won the Western District Student Chapter Award! We ranked 1st among 21 student chapters within the western 13 states! The last time we we won was in 1996.
This goal was envision since the previous summer where we strategically planned the entire upcoming year by organizing guest speakers, technical tours, social events, and research opportunities for our members who will be presenting at conference. From the data collection proposal, to our educational outreach project with high school students; there has been a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes.
President Ortiz’s shout out:
We’re very grateful and humbled for receiving this honorable award. We look forward to an amazing time at the Western District Conference in Santa Barbara and hopefully at the International Annual Conference in Atlanta. See you all there!
