The Econ Club is off to a great start this Fall, with many new members, strong attendance, and lively discussions at our weekly meetings. More so than in previous years, many of the Club’s guest speakers are graduates of our department’s BA, MA and PhD programs. We are excited that one of them is the first President the Club ever had. Other speakers include representatives from various government institutions and business firms, and Economics Department faculty. As always, the Club’s goals are to provide opportunities for students to learn economics outside of the classroom and to acquire information about possible career paths for economics majors. The Club also seeks to facilitate networking that may lead to internships and jobs.
For students who serve as officers, the Club also provides opportunities for the development of skills in the areas of leadership, written and oral communication, and information technologies. Several students are serving as officers this year:
Jessica Mueller (President)
Franchesca Cristoforo (Vice-President)
Emmanuel Ruiz (Webmaster and IT Officer)
Ahmad Atra (Assistant to the Webmaster and IT Officer)
Emely Flores (Public Relations Officer)
Rodrigo Garcia (Treasurer), Amena Siddiqua (Secretary)
Magdalena Kowalkowska (Logistics Officer).
Cody Shadoin, Paul Curtiswittenberg and Jeffrey Peterson are serving as Assistants to the President.
