Do you have a passion for FRC5190 or STEM Education? We are currently recruiting 2 board members. We are in need of students, parents, mentors or sponsors who are passionate about supporting FRC Team 5190 and our mission to promote STEM Education. The 2 positions we currently need to be filled are Secretary and Treasurer.
We are in our infancy and have been operating without the volunteers we need. After we fill our Board positions and have an operational meeting, we will then call for a general membership meeting with an eye toward finishing this season and building a strong foundation for the team's 2015-2016 season. The NCFirst organization announced recently they will be going to a district model next year for competition and this will present fundraising challenges that we will want to be ready to face.
It is our goal to have a complete complement of working, active committees to support the team and STEM Education. If you have an eye on serving in 2015-2016, there will be elections in May for those positions. This year's positions will be appointed as set out within our charter by-laws.
