Dear CAST members,
Last year at the AIChE Annual Meeting, the CAST Division organized a CAST student lunch on
Monday, which was attended by 15 students. After this successful start, we plan this year to
expand the initiative, including financial support by CAST and adding an ice-cream social on
Wednesday evening, in addition to the Monday student lunch.
We are now seeking student volunteers from the CAST community to serve on the organizing
committee. This student initiative is aimed toward graduate student members of CAST, although
undergraduate student CAST members are also welcome to volunteer. This is a great chance for
students to network within the CAST community, as well as an opportunity for professional service.
We ask that faculty members forward this email to their graduate students who are attending the
AIChE annual meeting. Students volunteering for the organizing committee should email Professor
Martha Grover no later than July 17.
The CAST student events at the AIChE meeting will be open to AIChE CAST members only.
However, CAST membership is only $10 per year, and CAST membership also makes a student
eligible to apply for a CAST travel grant to the AIChE meeting.
Martha Grover and Ray Adomaitis
