ICRI 2015 Spring Convention March 25-27
Between Wednesday March 25, and Friday, March 27 2015, the CIM program endorsed a number of the board members of the ICRI student chapter to attend the 2015 Spring Convention at Millennium Broadway Hotel in New York, NY. The attendants were: Michelle Ghanime, Yasmine Elrashidy, Walter Cevallos, Luis Valladares, Michelle Neri, Andrew Canon, Daniel Regad, Andrew Canon, and Jerhard Evangelista. During the conference, The NJIT CIM Students Chapter was inaugurated as the second ICRI student chapter in USA after California State University in Chico. Michelle Ghanime received the ICRI Student Chapter Banner from Dale Regnier.
It was a wonderful occasion to give students an opportunity to socialize more closely with the organization that helped recognize the student chapter that we behold today. The CIM program is becoming widely recognized through these social events with more familiarity of what our program offers our students. The ICRI conference attendants gathered together as a goal to share their knowledge and expertise around with others which was collectively shared among our students.
The students had the opportunity to intersperse and meet several different people of different positions within the chapter including the current and future ICRI presidents. Along with the bi-annual conventions that ICRI holds, these social events allow our students to be introduced to Metro NY Chapter members and take note of the strong acquaintances. This was a perfect opportunity to join ICRI in New York City to take advantage of the relationships our students have, or can have, with other ICRI members around the country—information, education, knowledge, and experience all in one place! It all adds up to a unique opportunity for both novice and seasoned professionals to gain a greater understanding of what peers are doing and how repair knowledge can be applied and contribute to one’s success.
The CIM Students were accompanied by Dr. Mohamed Mahgoub and Professor Allyn Luke.
NJIT would like to take the opportunity to thank Dale Regnier, Naomi White and Kelly Page for inviting us to such an event.
