Welcome to Waterloo Engineering, 2022s, and to everyone else, welcome back! I’m looking forward to making the most of the last four months of my exec term. There have been some recent changes over our co-op term, so I’m here to update you on where we are and what we’re doing.

For Novelties, we’ve recently reordered a lot of stock, and so if there’s something you missed you should go check to see if it’s back! I’m also in the process of finally putting together our Novelties Display in the case outside of the EngSoc Office, so keep your eyes peeled! Excitingly new this term is our Patch Design Director, Ben Beelen, who is looking to see a new patch for every department in Novelties by the end of the term! Look for more information at the beginning of October!

In Ridgidware we’re expanding our services and have recently absorbed the ECE stores stock and responsibilities. We visited EngCon on September 23 to say hi to all of the Waterloo Engineering students who were around. We’re also setting up for our big move into E7 Ridgidware, which will be conveniently located next to the ideas clinic! Think of us during your next project! Our hours are 11:30-1:30 and we can be found in CPH foyer.

A huge shoutout goes to the team responsible for our BOT, (Beginning of Term Party) in POETS at the beginning of September. It was a fantastic evening, and we’re (myself especially) very excited to see more events that will be happening in POETS this term. If you were a fan of last term’s End of Term Party, I would keep my eyes, and my schedule near the end of November, open!

Sponsorship for Fall 2017 is over $10,000. We’re excited to be able to lend a hand to some student teams in need. Keep an eye out for the following dates:

Committee Selection: October 4th, Council Meeting

Proposals Due: Oct 27th, Online

Presentations: Nov 4th, In POETS

Thank you all for reading, and I’ll keep you posted as time goes on. Fall 2017 is going to be full of surprises! If you have any comments, concerns or questions, ideas for novelties stock, or an update on financials, you can find me at vpfinance.b@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca.
