Officer Elections

Hi, BMES!

As you've likely already heard, this Wednesday we will hold Officer Elections for the 2014/2015 academic year at our General Meeting. Attached to the weekly email is the current list of those running; however, you are able to nominate yourself or a friend up until the moment of elections! Also note that the meeting will be held in 1025 ECB, and because of the large amount of interested officers (which is great!), the meeting may run past 7pm. Let me know as soon as possible if you are interested in running, or have any questions/concerns about the process/timing/etc. (preferably at fantl@wisc.edu).

And, in addition, check out the calendar for more details regarding our Qdoba Fundraiser, River Food Pantry visit & the Brewers Game trip--all also occurring this week, too!


See you soon,

- Carie

Join Us at Relay for Life!

Hi, BMES!

In addition to our “usual” BMES events this week (general meeting and intramural volleyball), BMES is excited to participate in the campus wide Relay for Life event this Friday night. Almost all of us have, in some way, been touched by cancer -- so we've decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in this American Cancer Society event. Team members are encouraged to raise as much as they can, but are only required to donate $10 to participate.

If you haven't already, be sure to register for our team at the following link: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?team_id=1543098&pg=team&fr_id=58718&fl=en_US&et=54EZ8toCKKtcMQbVC7bEzg&s_tafId=1420330

Have a great week, and hope to see you soon!

Interested Officers Meeting

Hi, BMES!

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who was able to attend our Cup Night at the Nitty Gritty last Thursday. Thanks to you, we were able to raise over $250! I hope that we can continue our fundraising streak with our Eat Wings Raise Funds event at Buffalo Wild Wings tomorrow! Stop by any time, enjoy some delicious wings, & BMES will receive a portion of the sales. Be sure to mention BMES, or show the attached flier.

This Wednesday we will also be holding an Interested Officers Meeting. If you are considering running for an officer position for the next year, stop by to hear more about all the great positions we have available. Be sure to let me know (via email or at any upcoming event) what positions you are interested in running for.

We also have an AWESOME underclassmen event scheduled for this Thursday. Stop by the Sett for an evening of rock climbing, bowling, pool and 50 cent wings. While its being hosted especially for the underclassmen, all members are more than welcome!!

Have a great week, and see you soon!

Students who are studying bio-medical engineering or other physical sciences often have a good chance to transfer into management once they have established themself as a researcher. Having people with real experience in executive level positions can be a real benefit for a large organization. If you are interested in working at an executive level position, getting connected with executive recruiters or headhunters can be a good way to get connected.

Conference Room Tables for BMES Meetings?

Undergraduate Biomedical Engineering Societies have conferences to practice giving presentations and lectures about their research. That brings into question, what are the best chairs, tables and accessories for your meeting space? Conference tables, executive or guest type chairs? Luckily, online retailers such as conferenceroomoutfitters.com have a wealth of information on the subject.

Encoder Products for Motion Feedback control

University of Wisconsin - Madison engineering students are studying motion feedback control systems in an absolute encoder or rotary encoder used in such industries as oil and gas, and aerospace. These unique devices are engineered with top quality materials and provide students with a great learning opportunity. Just one more reason why the University of Wisconsin - Madison is a great choice for students eager to learn!

Titanium Internet Security Solutions for BMES

Biomedical engineering students who get internships working with companies will likely have their first encounter with HIPPA compliance and patience privacy. Unless you work in the health care industry, it is hard to understand the lengths that health care workers have to go to protect patients' privacy information. If you, or your company, ever needs internet security solutions, Titanium Internet Security provides software protection.
