As mentioned in my previous update, the main focus of the Vice President Services portfolio has been
the National Engineering Month Poster competition. Unfortunately, a lot of what is still expected of this
project is dependent on who will be sponsoring the event. Engineers Canada has been supportive of the
idea of the event and has expressed their interest in providing prizes for the competition, however the
details of this are unconfirmed. Whichever organization supports this project will have their logo on the
promotional poster of this event, and for that reason, both of the pending deliverables are not yet
prepared. I had a telephone conversation with Glenn Martin from Engineers Canada (Practice Lead,
Marketing and Outreach) discussing the provision of 10 Amazon Kindle Fires, one for each province, and
she will be discussing it with Engineers Canada Board of Directors. I will update the members on the
status of this proposal as soon as possible. I have not heard any feedback from the members about the
Pre Package so far.
Ranek, our IT Commissioner, has been compiling contact information of all of the member schools so
that the CFES can commence communications immediately at turnover. We have had great success with
it so far; all of the West and Quebec schools have filled out their information, and we are waiting on a
few schools from Atlantic and Ontario to complete theirs. The Ambassadors have been notified, and we
are continuously working on it.
Other than this, I have been preparing for my sessions for Congress 2015; I am in charge of 4 sessions:
two presentations, one panel, and one round table. I am looking forward to presenting these for the
delegates of Congress 2015.
