VP Regional Report

The membership committee was formed this year and a number of activities were planned by regional directors. An operating procedure was prepared to help regional directors step by step in planning and implementing regional plans. A request was made from all regional directors to submit a list of activities in their region by August 30 2014 in order to get the approval from CSBE council. All regional activities were discussed in the membership committee before being planned and funded.A number of activities are planned for the coming year for different regions and they will be carried out by the help CSBE seed finding. The membership committee had a number of conference calls over the year to discuss all plans and to update all members of past/planned activities.

I also had meetings with Rene to discuss and implement a new format for the CSBE newsletter. It resulted in a new Newsletter format which has been adapted since then. I have also helped the webmaster in preparing CSBE newsletters. 

This was the second year for me on the Council. Just as during the first year of my mandate, I took care this year of being the link between regional directors and the society members. This link is currently done by publication of news in the Perspectives Newsletter. This year, four newsletters were published and it was a pleasure for me to collect and assemble all the news in order to transmit them to society members.

The publication of the Perspectives newsletter requires the assistance of several people like regional directors. Indeed, they are responsible of contacting members located in their area in order to get relevant news for publication. I would like to thank all of them for the time granted to this task. A special thank goes to President Ron MacDonald and Secretary Ali Madani for their help in the Perspectives newsletter publication.

I would finally take this opportunity to invite all members to submit any relevant news to their regional directors or directly on our website: www.bioeng.ca

Since the beginning of my mandate, three editions of the Perspectives newsletter were published, the first one under the responsibility of my predecessor, Benoit Lacasse, and the others under my responsibility. It was a pleasure for me to collect and assemble all the news in order to transmit them to society members.

VP Regional Report 2009-2010

J’ai bien aimé travailler à collecter vos nouvelles et les assembler. Malheureusement je n’ai pas eu l’occasion d’assister aux assemblées annuelles comme je l’aurais souhaité. Ceci a limité mes contacts avec les membres de l’éxécutif et les membres internationaux.

Merci aux directeurs régionaux pour leur travail. Leurs contributions ont aidé à augmenter la visibilité des étudiants dans les nouvelles. A l’ère du Web 2.0, j’invite les membres à proposer des outils de communication et de réseautage complémentaires pour créer des liens entre les membres.

Bravo à Jim Townsend pour tout son travail des dernières années sur le Perspectives. Je termine maintenant un second mandat et le poste est ouvert pour le prochain VP Régional. A qui la chance?
