ENGINEERS WITHOUT BORDERS WEEKLY MEETING – THURSDAY NOVEMBER 15TH, 6:30-7:30PM

Since the dawn of humanity, we have been drawn to the waters as a seemingly boundless source of potential and resources.

But how recent really is this state of declination? Many people all across the globe still rely on our waters for sustenance; how do we ensure these waters can continue to supply this demand? Join us Thursday to discuss “shifting baselines,” the current state of world fisheries, and the future of supplying a populace dependant on the spoils of the sea.

SEMI ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Our Semi Annual General Meeting (SAGM) has been moved to November 14th, beginning at 5:30pm.

 

SAGM is a time for the Engineering Society to review what has been accomplished throughout the semester, and what changes need to be made. The beginning of the meeting is a quick review of accountability, so if you have any questions for any of our members please feel free to attend this portion. (Accountability typically takes between 20-30 minutes) The rest of the meeting is used to make changes to the constitution and policy manuals which govern the way EngSoc is run. If you have any changes you would like to motion for please fill out the below form. All relevant documents are attached, and can be also found on our website. The deadline for motions to be submitted has been extended to Sunday November 11th at 11:50pm.  (Note: changes submitted to the form sent out previously will not be reviewed, please reach out with any questions regarding this)
