As part of the AIS executive board, my fellow vice-presidents and I strive to provide you with a platform that will help prepare you for a successful career in the Information System and Operations Management discipline. We will do this through numerous professional development and social events. On a personal level, we hope to present you with an environment that will establish a sense of community while fostering new friendships and relationships.
