Several members of our faculty invite corporate guests to make presentations in their classrooms. CMIS (cmis@mays.tamu.edu ) coordinates these efforts for the faculty. Faculty members send requests to us before the beginning of the semester. We compile the requests into a common calendar and forward these requests to members of the CMIS advisory board as priority and then to other companies for the unfilled needs.  Benefits to our CMIS advisory board members include a chance to meet before or after the class with some of our outstanding MIS students in an informal setting.
