On January 22nd, the Construction Management Student Organization hosted the first meeting of the Spring 2019 semester.
The first meeting began with National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) representatives discussing the start of a new student chapter at Kent State University. This will be a huge opportunity for students to break into the electrical industry and network with a nation wide organization.
Following the NECA presentation the Student Organization officers, led by President Alexandra Berman, discussed some of the upcoming opportunities and events for the semester:
