1. New Meeting Time
A new meeting time must be found for this semester as the old one
conflicts with some schedules.
| Monday 3:00pm
||TJ and Andrew have a lab
|Tuesday 5 or 6
||Megan has a lab
||Chris has a lab
||Patti and Briac prefer other times since they do not have classes at
all on Wednesdays so will not be at school
Wednesday 5:30pm is agreed upon by all since Patti
will be resigning soon and Briac will not be in regular attendance.
2. Planning Session
A planning session will be held at 5:30pm in the GSS for executives to
plan the coming semester's events and administration.
Directories this semester must be handed out in a timely fashion.
Sheets have been handed out and the following people are in charge of compiling
4B Mechs - Patti
4B Elecs/Comps - Aaron
3A All - Andrew/TJ
1B All - Chris, Megan
This semester voting will be held for VP Academic and President (for the
Fall). The President will be graduating at the end of this semester,
so the vote must be held now for the president for next semester (This
policy is outlined in the constitution). Debate was held on the validity
of electing the President for the next semester and not for the current
semester. Patti was afraid that the last president would not be readily
available for help in the September since it isn't the same thing to be
trained while not actually holding the position. Agreed upon was
that the current president would give the best possible training in this
semester and when the new president took on the role, the rest of the ESS
Executives would help out.
Time and Place
Last semester, the AGM was held at a time when Mechanical Engineers in
2B had a lab. One of the effects of this may be the fact that all
new executives were Electrical and Computer Engineers. This semester,
care should be taken to ensure this does not happen. Turn out at
last semesters meeting was also low, not only because no 2B Mechs could
come, but also because it was held in a building across campus. Meeting
turn out is important for a sufficient quorum, so this semester it should
be held at a time and place convenient to all.
Since many people come out to the Dean's bar-b-que, having the AGM just
before is a good idea. ESS members should check before the planning
session on Wednesday to make sure that this time will not conflict. Notice
must be given by Thursday for the AGM to be on Friday, January 29, 1999.
5. Outlook Contacts
Stream 'A' has started a contacts list using Outlook. Chris explained
that new contacts can be added, but should be added by organization or
business name instead of personal name for easy future look-up. Personal
names may be added in the Outlooks Contacts sheet about the business.
Competitors interested in attending WECC '99 are:
The price of airfare to Saskatoon is currently around $238 +Tax, priceof
competitor entrance fee is $200. The ESS should be able to afford
to pay for the competitor entrance fees, since all money to go to CCES
was fundraised, and therefore there is an overage in the Conferences &
Mike Fisher and Partner TBD
Karl and Aaron are maybes
WECC needs to get delegate list ASAP since we were already granted
an extension that was up last Friday.
