Professional Development Committee
The Professional Development Committee assists club members in developing résumés and cover letters, and it has also organized a periodic “suit-up” event, taking students shopping for professional clothing.
Event Planning Committee
The Event Planning Committee develops informal club events to promote networking and socializing among club members, including a fall picnic to welcome new students and an annual holiday party. The group has also organized trips to
see professional athletic events including the Fort Wayne Komets and the Indiana Pacers.
