would like to announce that it has ceased operation in it's present form due to the need to draft a new approach towards including young manufacturing professionals in an all inclusive new associate society for Professionals and Students involved in STEM and the makerspace movement in the Chicago region and surrounding Midwestern community.

We hope to update you again on the progress of our proposed reorganization within two weeks from today, 10/8/2013.

At present, the interim committee would like to state the following as our initial focus

Our current agenda is the following

1. Currently, no society focused on volunteerism and entrepreneurship exists to serve emerging young engineering professionals and the "Makerspace" open source movement.

2. The Interim development committee will be meeting to discuss the formation of a new associate engineering society in the near future along with creating a presence on social media and leveraging this website to advance the emerging consensus on STEM and engineering education in the Chicago area and Midwestern regions.

In the interim, we can be reached at with questions or proposals.
