First Year Representative Nominations Open!

Are you a first year student in the Faculty of Engineering interested in becoming more involved in the McMaster Engineering Society? If so, then do I have a proposition for you!

First Year Reps carry the honour of representing (you guessed it) the entire first year engineering class! Duties include:

  • Having a voting seat on the MES Council
  • Advertising MES events to your fellow first years
  • Organizing events through the First Year Club
  • Voicing concerns of first year students to course coordinators
  • Being awesome in general

If the above sounds like something you want to be involved in, then complete and submit your nomination form (found here) to the CRO mailbox in the BLUE Lounge (JHE 121) or scan it and email it directly to me (

Following the end of nominations I will meet with all nominees on Monday September 22 at 7:00 PM to discuss the rules of the election. Campaigning will occur between September 24th and 29th (which means that during nomination period you should only seek nominations, and not campaign directly! The full rule list can be found in section 10 of the MES Policy Manual). Finally ballots will be cast by all eligible first years September 30th. I look forward to your response!

And, for those of you who want their information brief:
