Elections


Presidential elections will take place on Thursday at Member Learning! Be sure to make your way to 1B79 at 6pm to hear from the candidates and cast your vote!



Member Learning 


 This week’s Member Learning will focus on Fair Trade to wrap up our Fair Trade February campaign. We’ll be in 1B79 at 6pm on Thursday.


For those of you who missed the meeting before the break, you don’t have to miss out on the learning! Earlier in the year, we sent a list of question to Duncan McNicholl, our learning partner in Malawi. The answers he sent back (ranging from his favourite relish to an ideal borehole funding strategy) are both interesting and informative. Check out the pdf attached to get the inside scoop on some of EWB’s work, and the challenges in international development. For even more information, head to Duncan's blog at waterwellness.ca


SciFi Workshops


We will be running workshops for SciFi Science Camps this Saturday, March 5th and still need volunteers! There will be five one-hour workshops running from 9 - 2; we especially need volunteers for the afternoon. The workshops are always lots of fun, and we will make sure to pair new presenters with experienced volunteers!

For more information, or to sign up for a workshop, email kathrynpalmer3@gmail.com



Exec Meeting


The exec will be meeting after Member Learning on Thursday; feel free to stick around!
