The Michigan Tech Railroad Engineering and Activites Club (REAC) will be holding our next monthly general business meeting on Tuesday, Jan 17 at 7pm in Fisher 133. This month's agenda includes our featured presentation by Mike Larson, an MTU Grad who now works for BNSF Railway in their locomotive mechanical department. He'll be coming to us live via Web Conference and will discuss topics about maintaining BNSF's expansive motive power fleet.
We're looking for questions you may want to have answered by Mike - if you have any such questions about the topic, send us an email at achristm@mtu.edu and we'll add it to the materials being forwarded on to him.
In addition to the presentation, we'll also take some time to discuss involvement and job opportunities - the spring career fair is coming up. We also have our spring field trip coming up in March, so you'll get to hear about some of what we're planning. Fitting with Mike's presentation, our company highlight will cover BNSF, the nation's second-largest railroad. Lastly, we'll be offering a different sort of raffle prize this semester, so make sure you stop by to find out what that is. Pizza and refreshments will be served. See the attached flyer for more details! 
See you on Tuesday!
