The MIT Corporation Screening Committee is seeking nominations for a young alumnus or alumna to join the Corporation, the Institute's governing body, for a five-year term beginning a year from now.
There will be an open meeting on Thursday, Oct. 3 in the Simonides Conference Room (3-207) from 6:30-8:30pm at which Screening Committee members will be on hand to discuss the process and answer students' questions. Free pizza and soda will be provided.
Seniors, final-year graduate students, and anyone who received or will receive a degree between September 1994 and June 1997 are eligible for nomination, providing they will not be continuing as a student or employee of MIT. To nominate someone, including yourself, provide as much written information as possible, including references, for your suggested candidate. The screening committee will make preliminary selections based on this material.
Nomination forms may be obtained from Bonnie Jones, Rm 10-140, x3-8212, . The nomination form will also be on Athena and the Alumni Association's Web page at as of October 10. The nomination deadline is Monday, Nov. 4.
Those selected will be interviewed by the committee, which eventually chooses six to 10 finalists for placement on a ballot. Ballots are mailed to all final-year students as well as 1995 and 1996 degree recipients. The candidate with the most preferential points is presented to the Corporation for membership approval.
