Student Technology Club – Leadership

The Illinois Technology Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of the technology talent pipeline in the State of Illinois.

Advisory Board

The Student Technology Club’s governing body (Advisory Board) will consist of no less than 10 members and no more than 15. Initially the Advisory Board will have 11 members: six (6) students and five (5) industry professionals. This will be the founding Advisory Board. Advisory Board Members will serve a term of two years. Future student Advisory Board members will be elected by the student members, the industry professionals will be selected by the Chairman of the Illinois Technology Foundation.

The students will hold the key positions in the Club, president, vice presidents, secretary, , etc. The Advisory Board will meet at least quarterly during the year and will be responsible for developing programming, promoting and expanding the Club and coordinating activities with other student technology clubs in Illinois.

All funding for Student Technology Club programs will be provided by the Illinois Technology Foundation, so the Student Technology Club Advisory Board will have no fiduciary responsibility and cannot make financial commitments.
