Hi Engineering Students!
As the new academic term starts, the 38th management committee (MC) is starting to wrap up on our final few weeks in our terms of service. The elections for the upcoming MC will be happening this coming week, and the latest details for the elections can be found at http://enginclub.com/elections.
We have decided to include a 2 additional positions, signifying additional areas that EnginClub would like to focus upon. From a recent survey done in the previous semester, 1/4 of the responses preferred EnginClub to focus more on the academic aspect of the undergrad's life here in NUS, and we have decided to add an academics director into the positions for the 39th MC. the The NUSSU Rag and Flag is a key component in the NUSSU calendar of events, and as one of the constituent clubs of NUSSU, we have a stake in the success of the event. Most of our students have heard of Rag, and many have been part of it as well, with huge credits to the previous generations of Rag directors over the years. We have however been lacking in the Flag department, and it has been decided to include the Flag director, a person focused in not just the "flagging" aspect of the position, but also the continued interactions and contributions to our adopted beneficiaries and extended communities. Read up more on the roles and responsibilities of each position here: https://goo.gl/yoWpIu.
Do head over to the elections page, once again at http://enginclub.com/elections, for the latest updates to the elections, and to take a look at the positions available and their job scopes, you might be asked to join the elected directors' committees, and even one day see yourself running for a position in EnginClub or NUSSU in the future. If you do wish to run for this election, head on over to https://orgsync.com/134642/forms/210174 to indicate your interest.
We would like to stress that the elections involves every undergraduate student in the faculty of engineering, be it through the external elections, or knowing who is running for the positions in the elections and their motivations for doing so. We hope that the student body would gradually be more involved in the activities of EnginClub for years to come.
