Dear MES Members,
Welcome to the start of the 2019-2020 McMaster Engineering Society year! I have been acting as your MES President for just around one month and wanted to take this opportunity to keep you up to date on some big plans that we have for this year, especially the work that we, the MES Executive, will be focusing on over the summer to prepare for your return to campus in the fall.
Meet This Years’ Team
The MES Executive is a team of six dedicated members: President (myself), VP Student Life (Aya Aboughanem), VP Finance & Administration (Ian Currie), VP Academic (Alex Moica), VP Communications (Roberta Boreham), and VP External Relations (Amy Gullins). This team is supported by four AVPs, two Officers, 14 Department and Program Representatives, six First Year Representatives, and around 40 Coordinators, Chairs, and Editors. These members are brought together by the desire and goal to improve your undergraduate experience here at Mac. Be it through advocating to the faculty about academic changes, providing opportunities for you to build your community, building your professional development skills, or working to support clubs and teams, we are here to help you make the most of your undergrad.
Major Goals for the Summer
Although some major changes will be coming to the MES this year due to recent government mandates around Student Societies on campuses, the MES is dedicated to ensuring that the integrity of why we exist stays strong through the changes.
