Executive & Senator Position Manuals & Descriptions:
Simply put, you are the captain of the ship. You are responsible for developing and setting a vision for the Engineering Society for all of the years, while developing and maintaining a positive and encouraging environment. You will be communicating, collaborating and consulting with the Engineering Society as a whole and with the University. The president shall have a paid summer position.
You represent the entire engineering undergraduate student populace on large scale academic matters in the faculty. You are responsible to ensure the student voice is heard, while being prepared to act as resource and be consulted for your knowledge on academic policies and regulations. This is no longer a paid summer position.
You are the primary financial and legal officer of the Engineering Society and are responsible for the facilities, finances, and service operations of the Engineering Society. You will be assisted in the duties by the Director of Finance and the Director of Services, while working with Head Managers and the General Managers at the strategic level. The vice-president of operations is a paid summer position.
You are responsible for wide range of various internal and external responsibilities within in the Engineering Society. The direct tasks include overseeing and motivating the Director of Internal Affairs, the Director Events, the Director of Information Technology, and the Communications Officer. As well, VPSA is responsible for the weekly AllEng email newsletters, ensuring the hiring of positions is appropriately advertised. The vice-president of society affairs is now a paid summer position.
You represent all non-academic student initiatives, acting as a liaison between groups, a representative, a supporter, and a resource for the vast majority of the Society’s student initiatives. Within the VPSD portfolio there is the Director of Professional Development, a Conference Coordinator, as well as multiple conference chairs, design team captains and club executive members.
The Senators have minimal responsibilities within the structure of the Engineering Society itself. The majority of a Senator’s work is done outside of the Society within the University administration, and they make important decisions that impact the entire University as a whole. The Junior Senator has positions on the University Senate, Student Senate Caucus, the Applied Science Faculty Board and EngSoc Council as well. The Senators are free to vote as they please on issues that they face.
