Will Wilmot, Melissa Buckley, Dan Robertson - VP External / VP Communcations
Posted on: August 27, 2016

Hey there! We are Will Wilmot (A-Society VP External), Melissa Buckley, and Dan Robertson (B-Society VP Communications).  We are responsible for the external marketing and branding of the Society to any external organizations.

A large focus that we have is taking care of any logistical responsibilities for attending conferences, which include delegate selection, travel plans, and reporting on the conference to the faculty and the Dean. We also attending meetings of external bodies related to engineering students and Professional Engineers; this includes Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), the Engineering Student Societies’ Council of Ontario (ESSCO), and the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES).

There are numerous opportunities for everyone to participate in conferences with engineering students from around the country, and to share your experiences. This is a great way to learn about how other schools’ Engineering Societies function and bring new information back to our school. If you would like more information about what happens at conferences, what you stand to gain from them or anything conference related in general, feel free to find Will in the Orifice during the Fall term, Melissa in the Winter, or send an email to vpexternal@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca.

We are looking forward to meeting you all, and we hope you have an amazing time here at Waterloo! Don’t be afraid to reach out to us, or to try something new. Best of luck in first year!
