Gerald Lau (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I want to build on the success of last year's pizza lunches with local industry organizations by instituting twice a year "Local High Tech Days". The basic idea is to have a two hour, noon-time meeting with pizza where local high tech organizations can provide brief, 15 minute presentations about their organizations, and ICS students can come listen and learn about local professional opportunities.
What I'm interesting in learning is what you would like to have happen in order to make this day as much of a success as possible. If you attended any of the meetings last year (as a student or as a company representative), what was good and should be retained? What should we remove or add in order to improve it this year? If you didn't attend last year, what should we do this year to encourage your participation?
