FROM WHERE I SIT Monica Holmes, Chair BIS Department As dependably, time flies and at the end of the day the BIS-e-Times has news for you. The most energizing news is the five\'s contracting new employees, i.e., four MIS and one BTE/business correspondence. They are a fine expansion to the office\'s qualities. I am likewise particularly glad for the way that understudies in both the BTE and MIS majors and minors take numerous elective classes together.

In this issue, we have included a section perceiving the benefactors to the BIS division, and in the following issue, we plan to include news about our graduated class. In any case, keeping in mind the end goal to do that, we have to get news about you. Dr. Blast was the acting director while I was on my vacation. He simply completed his holiday this past spring. In the fall, Drs. Cappel and Hwang will be going on their holidays. While holidays may seem as if the workforce are taking their get-aways, nothing is further from reality. They chip away at examination extends that could include joint effort with workforce at different colleges, gathering information for these undertakings from organizations, and even re-attending so as to tool themselves workshops and courses and in addition going by organizations to watch how business ideas are connected in the work environments. I was blessed to invest some energy at Eli Lilly in Indianapolis, IN and to have the chance to perceive how our previous MIS graduates are doing there. Vacations and comparable examination leaves are basic to staff who can set aside an ideal opportunity to take a shot at exploration and instructing without different duties on their time. Nothing is more energizing to the BIS workforce than to catch wind of the accomplishments of their understudies. AITP has at the end of the day demonstrated that they are a match for their associates at different colleges and schools. While we are pleased with the way that each spring semester they pack up their rigging to contend with different understudies, this past spring they exceeded themselves and conveyed a few prizes home to CMU.
