The primary role of the National Councillors (“NCs”) is to provide institutional knowledge to the organization. The National Councillors have typically been involved in CFES for several years and can speak to projects and initiatives undertaken by various different executive teams and their successes or failures. This is particularly useful when considering the annual turnover rate of the membership and officer team. Aside from providing this insight, the National Councillors also undertake various projects according to their strengths and preferences, and other miscellaneous tasks throughout the year as needed. They each have a vote at the CFES Board of Directors.
Hello! I’m Marianne, one of the incoming National Councillors. Prior to this exciting role, I’ve had the opportunity to be involved in many engineering student organizations throughout my schooling thus far. I was an executive for the uOttawa engsoc for 2 years as Manager of Translations and V.-P. External, as well as being a student representative on the board. Last year, I took on the role of Bilingualism Commissioner of the CFES! I love cats(especially my roommate’s cat, Mitzy) and going to concerts as much as possible(the pandemic has made that a little hard…)! I’m very open and love discussing new ideas, don’t be shy to email me ([email protected]) or say hi to me if you see me at a conference!
- Advancing the CFES as a bilingual organization in terms quality of service
- Clean up policy regarding bilingualism and translations and its impacts on all parts of the CFES operating structure (I also plan on reviewing other aspects of policy that have been overlooked)
- Support the team as best I can and give insights based on my knowledge and experience
