VP External Report

Kevin Ling - VP External
Posted on: May 19, 2010

Hi everyone, welcome back to campus. There’s been quite a bit of excitement in the External world over the last four months so I’ll start off with a quick summary of what I’ve been up to.

At the start of January, Scott and I went to glamorous Hamilton for the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students annual Congress meeting. We met with executives from engineering student societies from all over Canada and learned a lot about how things are run at different universities. That gave us a chance to see what works and what doesn’t work so hopefully we’ve learned lots that we can take back and better serve our own EngSoc. Then back in February, I attended the Engineering Student Societies Council of Ontario’s (ESSCO) First Year Integration Conference along with Myles Tan and Vlad Katkov.

As for new business, there are two things that I want to announce right now. The Waterloo Engineering Competition (WEC) will be coming up this term. WEC is still in the planning stages right now, but there will be an announcement made shortly about when it will be held. Also, I am currently looking for delegates for the ESSCO Annual General Meeting. As of this writing, the applications should be due on the night of publication, but if I’m feeling nice I might extend it by a day or two. We’ll see. Just check the front page for the EngSoc website for more details and how to apply.
