A Glimpse at Conferences – Past and Future

One of the best parts of being the Vice President Communications (in my opinion) is attending conferences to represent all of you, and this past term I got the chance to go to a few. Over the winter, the two conferences I attended were the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES) Congress and the Engineering Student Societies Council of Ontario (ESSCO) First Year Integration Conference (FYIC). If you want to know more about what happened at either of these conferences, please feel free to reach out to me.

This term, I will be bringing a delegation of Waterloo Engineers to ESSCO’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) at York University in June. AGM is a conference focused on leadership development and the sharing of best practices and is an opportunity for the Vice President Externals (my position with a different name) from each school to convene and discuss the direction of ESSCO for the next year. We also elect the next group of ESSCO executive at AGM, so it is a busy weekend.

Conferences are a great way to develop your leadership skills and network with engineers from across the country. Make sure that you look out for application forms to attend conferences on our Facebook page and on the weekly mailer.

If you have any questions, want to learn more or just want to have a chat, please feel free to find me in CPH 1327 on Wednesdays from 2:30pm-4:30pm or Fridays from 11:30am-12:30pm. Alternatively, send me an email at vpcomm.b@engsoc.uwaterloo.ca. Have a great term everybody and enjoy the sun!
