 +\opening{To whom it may concern:}
 +I am writing in relation to the Association for Computing Machinery'​s Fall
 +2017 club application. As you may know, the Association for Computing Machinery
 +(ACM) is the leading technical society for pure Computer Science. This semester,
 +as always, the ACM student chapter at New Mexico Tech looks
 +forward to hosting alumni speakers, research presentations by students,
 +programming and cybersecurity competitions,​ and skills seminars.
 +\textbf{Club Description}
 +The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is the premier technical society
 +for computer science and information technology majors. The NMT student chapter
 +provides many personal and career enrichment opportunities to the NMT student
 +body, including programming competitions,​ game jams, alumni speakers, and
 +the NMT ACM technical presentation series. NMT ACM is a great way to get
 +involved with your fellow CS/IT students and further develop your professional
 +network and skills.
 +The NMT ACM is not in possession of any SGA property.
 +To support our programming,​ we are requesting a total of \$300.00.
 +First, we are requesting \$240 to cover the purchase of food for some of our
 +events. We host presentations weekly by students, alumni, and industry
 +professionals,​ usually in the evenings during dinner hours. At 16 meetings per
 +semester this is a cost of only \$15 a meeting. We receive some support from the
 +CSE department for larger events, and approach the SGA for support with covering
 +the remainder of this expense.
 +Second, we are requesting \$50 to cover miscellaneous expenses involved in
 +presentations and competitions. We often need to purchase supplies and small
 +prizes for our programs, and from time to time our programs require technical
 +services from other university departments and third parties. These
 +presentations and competitions help CS and IT students to develop their
 +technical and soft skills.
 +Third, we are requesting \$10.00 in operating costs to cover expenses
 +associated with our TCC and CSE department accounts and our virtual machine
 +hosted by the CSE department.
 +\textbf{Volunteer Hours}
 +To meet the SGA's requirements for volunteer hours this semester, the NMT ACM is
 +planning on hosting a Game Jam open to the whole student body. The Game Jam is a
 +48 hour competition to create a functioning video game that demonstrates the
 +creative and technical skills of its participants. In semesters past this event
 +has attracted a large number of students from across campus, and we have
 +ambitious plans to further grow the event.
