The Engineering Society (EngSoc) will be holding the Officer Accountability Meeting on Friday, October 30th, at 6:00 PM EDT.

The Officer Accountability Meeting is an open meeting where the EngSoc Officers (President and Vice-Presidents) share the work they’ve been doing over the last 6 months (half-way through their terms). As an undergraduate engineering student, you are entitled to attend this meeting, ask questions and to vote on motions to remove each Officer from their roles. The motions to remove the Officers are a standard practice that is in place automatically to help provide the student body with an opportunity to vote on whether they feel the Officer should remain in their position or not.

This meeting will take place on a Microsoft Teams call, you can join it through this link at the time of the meeting. A few things to note:

  • Please make sure you’re logged in from your utoronto account. If you are an alumni member or don’t have access to a utoronto account, please email speaker@skule.ca letting them know you wish to attend with a non-utoronto account.
