Francisco Perez will give all the information to Xorge regarding the website, the mailing list, the Facebook group and the list of members (in paper) to compile a database and create the members directory.

Montserrat will do some research into how to register the group (possibly an “AC”). She will also look into the information for our bank account.  Francisco will ask Santiago Corcuera if he can help us with these matters.

Francisco Perez will see with Jose Bernardo in how to get the list of alumni from the different bodies of the University (the BGS and the Alumni Office).  Francisco Perez will also see into getting the list of alumni from CONACYT, the British Council and FUNED.

All will think of upcoming events so that we can build an activities schedule for the next year. For this year we will have a formal dinner (Mónica) and a cultural/academic event (Wendy/Francisco Flores).

We will also start looking for venues for the different events (i.e., UNAM for the Darwin Event that Francisco Perez is overseeing to celebrate Darwin’s Year later at the end of 2009 with the participation of Dr. Jesus Hernandez from the Veterinary Dept.). Carlos has the place where we held our first event (Casa de la Primera Imprenta).

Finally we will also compile a list of the people (personalities) that we want to include in the activities (Carlos Fuentes, Monsivais, etc.).
