ESSCO ESSCO ESSCO – A New Year, A New Team, A New Perspective

Grant Mitchell - VP Communications
Posted on: June 16, 2018

If you haven’t noticed, my articles have a pretty common theme of communications and if we’re being honest there’s way more to come over the rest of the term. This issue, I’m writing to you from the Engineering Student Societies’ Council of Ontario’s (ESSCO) Annual General Meeting (AGM) at York University.

ESSCO AGM is a conference that happens once a year that brings together engineering students from across the province to collaborate, learn and network. This year the organizers here hit it out of the park and impressed everyone in attendance! Sessions included discussion on diversity and event planning, and Waterloo’s delegation soaked it all up and represented all of you extremely well.

AGM is also an opportunity for the new Vice President Externals from each society to meet and prepare for the next year of decision, discussions, development. This year’s team is great bunch of people that has great potential to make positive change in the organization and they are already to get going. This year, the team is looking to focus on mental health, student outreach, and youth engagement. I encourage you to reach out to me if you want to learn more about this year’s goals.

This conference is also where the new executive team of ESSCO is elected. Which includes the President, and the Vice Presidents of Finance and Administration, Communications and Services. This year two new positions were also introduced and included the Provincial Councilor whose job is to help guide the council over the coming year. We also introduced a new Ontario Engineering Competition Advisory Board representative who will speak on behalf of ESSCO to the Board and advise on steps going forward.

If you ever want to learn more about ESSCO or have any thoughts or concerns you’d like to bring to my attention, please feel free to reach out to me. I love talking about ESSCO and I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
