Summer 2019 Semesterly General Meeting — SGM

Hello Future Engineers!


I hope everyone had a good first day of classes!  The ESS wants to remind everyone that our Semesterly General Meeting (SGM) is coming up this Thursday May 9th at 15:30 in the ELW Lobby.  At this meeting, we discuss important matters such as the terms budget, policy changes, hold elections, and eat FREE PIZZA.  In the past, all elections were done at this meeting, now things have changed recently but more on that below.

Remember, at this meeting we want your opinions and griefs!  If you don’t like the way we budgeted something, let us know and if the people agree it can be changed.  Your opinions matter and they can make a difference.



Ok, so what’s all this business about elections?  Didn’t we just hold elections?  What’s a Semesterly Elected Position?  I’m glad you asked.

Yes, we did our Council elections last term for the yearly elected council.  But, we have many smaller positions that are great for getting involved and making a difference with a bit less work.  These positions are now Semesterly Elected Positions.  These positions are elected at each SGM and are only in power for that term.  Less commitment, more fun, the same experience gained.…
