That’s a Wrap!

Hey there A-Soc! It’s hard to believe that this term is already coming to an end. Hopefully, things are starting to wind down and you’ve all had a great four months. Things have been pretty busy as the winter term comes to a close, and what a term it has been. The beginning of the term was rather conference heavy with both CFES Congress and the ESSCO First Year Integration Conference. The reports for both of those conferences, as well as all of last year’s conferences, are currently being posted on the website. If you’re ever interested in seeing what goes on, or looking at applying in the future, they are a great resource!

One of my major initiatives for this term was National Engineering Month, which is now just finishing up. A huge thank you goes out to all the directors who helped put the month together, and to those who came out to make all of the events a success. I hope that in future years, National Engineering Month continues to grow and that we can come up with new and exciting ways to celebrate and promote engineering as a discipline. The remaining NEM patches will now be on sale at Novelties until they run out, so be sure to pick one up before they’re gone! Hopefully the hard hat wearing goose logo will stick around in the future.

And finally, we have raised over $2000 for charity this term! I’m super proud of everyone who helped sell pancakes, grilled cheese, patches, and of course everyone who donated as well!

With that, my term as VP External is also coming to an end. I wanted to take this chance to thank everyone I had the opportunity to work with over the past 8 months. You guys are awesome and I am so grateful for all the hard work you put in this term. I’ve had a lot of fun being your VP Ex for the past little while, but with that, I’m now passing the reins onto Will, who will be finishing up the term with his commissioner team. Steven Jia is the Outreach Commissioner for the fall and will be overseeing all of our outreach and charities effort,s so be sure to look out for ways to participate in that. Also, Calvin Kwok will be the WEC Commissioner and will be responsible for putting together the Waterloo Engineering Competition! Unfortunately, I won’t be around in the fall, but I’m sure they will all do a wonderful job! If you ever have any questions about any of these portfolios, feel free to reach out to them or to Will at vpexternal.a@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca.
