Hey CDenizens, I’d like to pick your collective brains.
Having just started my freshman year of engineering at Tennessee Tech, I’m quite disappointed to find that there is virtually zero FIRST presence in my area. The distribution of FRC teams across Tennessee is a bit uneven, with Middle Tennessee being almost bereft of FRC teams. At some point (not immediately), I’d like to remedy this situation.
My first thought is that I’d like to give the FIRST alumni at my university a chance to continue in FIRST by volunteering at events and trying to promote the growth of FRC in the Upper Cumberlands. So my questions are:
From the perspective of those involved with or more familiar with FIRST Alumni Associations, is this the path I should take to give FIRST Alumni an outlet and a way to continue their involvement?
And if so, how would I go about creating a FIRST Alumni Association at my University, and what can I do to ensure its success?
Thanks in advance!
