Its that time of year again: registration time. This means we need all students to get registered between now and kickoff. For most of you, this is something you've done several times. And under the "Returning Students" tab under How to Register there is information on how to get registered. For those of you who are new, you'll need to create a STIMS account, and then basically follow the directions under the returning students tab.
Additionally, this year we are collecting contact and emergency information via a google form to reduce paperwork. This also makes sure that the team has contact information for every student and parent to distribute information and in case of emergency. This form also serves as our demographic form so we can get information for grants: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1mBj_FEC96zi9F-lpdCJI_9Tmx5LZkMrQ122EE_PhjVA/viewform?usp=send_form
Once the build season gets here, we'll need each student to sign a Team Contract, so keep your eyes and ears out for more info regarding this.
Finally, with the holiday season upon us, a reminder to make your purchases through Amazon smile. Just go to smile.amazon.com, and select "Young Engineers Association" as your charity, then go ahead and make your purchases. Each time you purchase through smile.amazon.com from then on, we'll get a portion of the proceeds. We currently recieve money quarterly from Amazon and we would like to continue this great partnership.
