AIGA table and upcoming events

Hi Everyone!  Just one last reminder about the AIGA table tomorrow (Friday)!  It will be in the student center from 12-1 tomorrow. Please bring$25 cash or a check written to MCAD. I will also need you to fill out your information on a sheet that i'll be handing in with the money.  
AIGA would also like new members to create an online profile.  This makes sure that they have the correct address to send you things, otherwise they send it all to MCAD. To create one, go here: www.aiga.org/member-account   

Also... here are some upcoming events that you all should go to!  1)So...How ideas are turned into results An event for emerging designers  Thursday, December 10, 2009 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. Modern Climate 800 Hennepin Avenue, 8th Floor Minneapolis, MN 55403  
Want to know what it takes for design to be successful these days? How are ideas turned into results? Understanding the difference between design and design strategy is the first step in developing and implementing an effective design solution. You are invited to the next “So…” event, "Strategy: Behind Design".  Listen and engage with a panel of local agencies who effectively use design strategy to add value to their client interactions, advertising campaigns, print, electronic, and packaging solutions. See the case studies behind some of their most successful projects and how incorporating design strategy resulted in amazing results. Find out how to develop skills that will help you emerge as a strategic designer.  Panelists: Jason Tell from Modern Climate | Brad Surcey from Zeus Jones | Mike Schwab from Colle+McVoy | Kelly Munson from mono  
2)Create Don't Hate A mentorship program with students from Washburn Highschool. Starts in January. Every Tuesday 8:30-9:30 for about 9 weeks.  This is a program where college students are the mentors and the high school students are the mentees.  It is sponsored by Adobe and World Studio.  In these 9 weeks, mentors will guide the students in creating a billboard based on the idea of tolerance.  There will be midway and a final critique by design professionals.  Then at the end, a winning billboard will be chosen... and will actually be hung up in Minneapolis.   If you are interested in helping out with this or being a mentor, email me and I can set you up with all the information.   

Thanks everyone! Good luck with finals.  -Sonja
