A Wild Election Appeared!!!

Will Wilmot - VP External
Posted on: November 6, 2016

So I took a look at all the articles, and realized that no one decided to cover the election… not THAT election, but the Engineering Society one. How did I see the articles ahead of time, you ask? Perks of helping the Iron Warrior team edit stuff. If you like to write stuff, edit stuff, have ideas for articles and/or are looking for a way to get involved, you should stop by E2-2347 around 5:30 on Tuesdays and say hi!

Back on topic – this is my last article as an executive member… Well, okay there will be one more, sure, but there will be new people to introduce and explanations of what will change once my team leaves office. Now, there’s an election coming up – yes, indeed, another opportunity to get your say (again, we aren’t talking about the American election here). For some positions, you’ll be voting for one (or a pair) of the candidates to represent you for the next 16 months; others, you will be voting either yes or no on a candidate who runs unopposed. Regardless of what your view is, you should get out and vote. These individuals will form the rest of a team that will work alongside Abdullah Barakat (the incoming President/current VP Finance if you didn’t know) to create and/or continue stuff that serves and helps you guys, the student population. There are a whole bunch of services that will be continued from previous terms such as the Student Deals (see other article on page nearby), resume critiques, and much more. Let me take a second to note that if there is something that you’d like to see happen, feel free to stop by the Orifice (CPH 1327) and talk to one of the executives about getting your event off the ground.

If you feel like you want to get involved in a larger capacity, stay tuned for commissioner applications which should be available sometime this month once the new team has been elected. They will meet and decide on which positions will be available in the upcoming spring term.

Final reminder to get out and vote from November 7th to 11th. If you have any questions or just want to chat, drop by the Orifice, or send an email to vpexternal.a@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca.
