I’d like to start by congratulating Tim Bandura who will be taking on the position of President for A-Soc for the next 16 months. I have had the pleasure of working alongside Tim for quite some time and I have no doubt that he won’t do anything less than an outstanding job! Tim has the experience along with a great vision and I look forward to seeing him excel in his new role starting this coming fall.

A couple of items to end off the term..

Firstly, hopefully you all had a chance to enjoy the ‘Rhino Day’ edition of POETS this past Friday. POETS was filled with balloons and signs wishing everyone a happy Rhino Day. I think everyone was just as confused as I was but it no doubt was amazing and definitely ended off the week with some excitement!

TalEng was last Tuesday and the election results were officially revealed!! I would like to give a huge shout out to Tim, Leah, Mark, Sean, and Praveen for being great sports in our edition of “Welcome new execs” which involved plenty of unbaked pancake mix, maple syrup, icing sugar, and some raspberries to top each of them off! Congratulations to all the new exec – we look forward to seeing you take over in the fall!

We will be having our final EngSoc meeting of the term (potluck) on Wednesday, March 24 starting at 5:30pm in POETS where we will be swearing in the new exec.

End of Term (EOT) party will be in POETs Friday, March 26th from 9pm-11pm. Be sure to come out and end the term off right!!

Lastly, I wanted to extend some well deserved thank you’s. This has been a great learning experience for me and it would not have been so rewarding without the outstanding people around me. Firstly, I want to thank Tim, Eric, and David for doing an amazing job working as a team to make this term run as smoothly as possible. I counted on each of them to do so much and I can’t thank them enough. I would also like to say a huge thank you to Sasha Avreline for his continued hard work and dedication to the many facets of the VP Education portfolio that he still remains involved with, most notably the PDEng Task Force. Sasha, you continue to amaze me. A special thank you to Mary for her outstanding work in making my job so much easier than it otherwise would be! To our enthusiastic directors this term who have put on a glamorous array of events; continuously displaying their passion and energy for the Society. Last but not least, I would like to thank Robin Jardin, Dean Sedra, and all of the support staff in the Dean’s Office that I have had the pleasure of working with during my term. We are very lucky to have such a dedicated team here at UW!

Thanks again and good luck with the end of term and finals!
