Happy Monday Everybody !

We had a fruitful meeting on Friday and work is underway. Some important notices and dates coming up:

Global Engineering Week planning meeting, will take place Friday the 12th from 7pm-8pm In the B-Annex Conference room. Room 201. The aim of this meeting will be to solidify the GE Week schedule and begin planning some of the events. There is a lot of opportunity to get involved from event coordinating, to simple volunteering. We need to design plenty of media, and advertisement as well as a few competitions and awards. We look forward to your thoughts and ideas on how to make this the best GE week to date

This workshop will help us break down stigma’s around helping and encourage us to take on a more active role in the care of those in our community.

 Volunteering Opportunities

Hello All!

We hope you’ve had a relaxing and enjoyable break as we head into the next semester. To begin, we just want to mention that EWB’s next general meeting will be on Friday, Febuaray 5th in the B-Annex Conference Room 201 (2160 Bishop) from 4-5pm. There will also be a member learning at the end. Note that should the location be changed, it will be posted on our facebook and you will all recieve a quick email update.

Now this coming semester is a big one for the EWB Concordia University chapter, as we will be hosting our annual Global Engineering week in March. But what is Global Engineering week? GE Week is a initiative by EWB Canada to raise awareness about the Engineering profession impacts, locally and globally. We have a variety of workshops, panels, and speakers through out the week, followed up by our annual wine and cheese.

If you’re interested in helping us plan our Global Engineering week, and potentially hold your own event, please fill out the GE Doodle found in our Get Involved section so we can arrange a weekly or bi-weekly date to meet.

There is also the opportunity to work with our VP Fundraising if you have ideas you would like to bring to EWB, or simply want to help out and volunteer. Please send a message to our VP Fundraising Jane.

And last but not least, if you’re available and want an easy volunteering experience, please fill out the samosa doodle in our Get Involved section with the times you are free!
