Our mission is to encourage greater participation and volunteering with the FIRST programs in North Carolina and the larger southeastern United States region. We want to see FIRST teams from North Carolina and the southeast advance to become the best in the world.
Additionally, we have a secondary goal to provide FIRST alumni a means of networking with one another in the region. We want to use our collective experience to see the FIRST ideals of gracious professionalism and coopertition applied beyond FIRST.
To accomplish this, we have set out to create this alumni coalition. The FIRST North Carolina Alumni Coalition consists of alumni from any FIRST Robotics Competition or FIRST Tech Challenge team (including teams outside of North Carolina!). Other than prior participation as a student on a FIRST team there are no other membership requirements.
From time to time, the alumni coalition will gather for events, networking and fun. We need your participation to help us create a dynamic and action-oriented group.
We are pleased to introduce Ann Weinberger as our Alumni Coalition Fearless Organizer. She will be reaching out to you once you are on our mailing list to get your ideas and to let you know about upcoming activities. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
