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 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.
