I.   Board Elections on December 10th

The HCS will have its annual Board Elections on Sunday, December 10th at
8:00pm.  We have five positions: President, Business Manager, Projects
Coordinator, Communications Manager, and Membership Coordinator.  Any HCS
member is eligible and encouraged to run for a position.  All members are
asked to please vote.  All counting will be done by hand, as per a recent
decision by the HCS Supreme Court of randomness in computation.

NOTE: Remember that you must be an official HCS member to participate;
students are granted membership by the board (and are given accounts
on hcs.harvard.edu and other privileges).  If you are interested in
becoming a member, have been active in the society, and feel that we
have inadvertently left you out, please e-mail board at hcs.harvard.edu right
away and let us know.

II.  HCS Voice Launch Party December 7th

The Harvard Computer Society is proud to announce the launch of HCS
Voice--the first-ever collegiate voice portal!  Our beta version is
complete, and we are kicking off the event with a launch party, co-sponsored
by Tellme Networks.  And 6 HCS alums who are now at Tellme will be there
too, so it's definitely time to party!

IV.  Harvard Entrepreneurial Action Team

HEAT is a group of Harvard undergrads with experience in finance,
start-ups, consulting and technology. We're here to help student
entrepreneurs take their ideas to the next level.

What we Offer You:
1.) Free, confidential advice from students who have seen entrepreneurs
face the issues you're now grappling with.
2.) Help with business-plan writing, competition research, team building,
presentation skills, and fund raising.
3.) Access to talent database of other students that would be interested
to join your team.
4.) Introductions to professors, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists
who are willing to help you once you've begun to grow your company.

Please contact Alex Rubalcava at arubalc at fas (cc: papakons at fas) if:
-> You have idea(s) but are hesitant to invest your time in them
because: you don't know their potential value and viability, you don't
have a team, and/or you don't know how to actualize them, or
-> You want to get involved (ask for an application form)
