Coordinates the overall Young Guns events calendar and supports other committees with event logistics and planning. The committee is comprised of five subcommittees for each city there are events (Houston, Dallas, Midland, Austin and Lubbock). Committee members can participate by volunteering at events (e.g. welcoming attendees, distributing surveys/events material) and / or planning events (e.g. brainstorming event ideas, coordinating speakers / venues).
The Fundraising Committee helps to coordinate fundraising events that support the Whitacre College of Engineering and Young Guns activities. Committee members participate in the brainstorming, planning, and implementation of these efforts such as helping with silent and live auction items, event sponsorships, and event marketing. In the past this committee has helped with the Engineering Alumni Homecoming event. (Although Young Guns are encouraged to be involved in philanthropy, your participation on this committee does not require your personal financial commitment.)
Manages the existing membership base and generates ideas on how to increase and maintain our membership. Some of the activities involved may include tracking membership numbers and event attendance to monitor growth and participation, work with Networking Chair to encourage event participation, plan and coordinate membership and recruiting activities, explain membership benefits to members and potential members, and welcome new members to the organization.
