Pie in the Eye (PITE) is the Regina Engineering Students’ Society’s favourite fundraiser! This year, we are running it during the second week of March from 9:00am-5:00pm. PITE is a fundraiser where volunteers deliver whipped cream pies around the city. To purchase a pie, you pay $10 (or more, if desired). Then our volunteers will send it to anyone in Regina.

The recipients of the pies can either:

Accept the pie in the face!

Pay the original amount, +$5, to send it to another person in Regina

Pay the original amount, +$10, to stop the pie chain

Anyone can order pies from the Engineering Lounge at the University of Regina (ED 127), or call 1-306-545-RESS (1-306-545-7377) from March 9-13, 9:00am-5:00pm.

This year we are excited to raise funds for the Tetra Society, which connects engineers with disabled clients to build custom devices to improve their quality of life. Included with this email is a letter of endorsement from the Tetra Society. Please share this message with others in your office and other companies in Regina to promote awareness.

Become a Commissioner for the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students

cfes_fceg_header

Message from Mark Grady, 2015 President of the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students:

After another great Congress, the time has come for the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students to open up Commissioner applications for the 2015-2016 year! If you would like to join our team for the upcoming year, then apply before February 13th, 2015 at 11:59:59 PM.

The application form is available at the following link: http://goo.gl/forms/UfyxGKRfqo

Any member of a member school is welcome to apply for a position. If you have a sharp set of skills, a particular interest in a project or task, want to give back, or otherwise want to get involved and contribute to our national body, this could be great fit for you.    

Commissioners are key players on the Officer Team, who each deal with a specific set of tasks / projects. We have commissioners in order to best divvy up the work of the CFES into specific portfolios. Then, they can be worked on individually (or with other assigned individuals, if that’s decided) until the Officer Team regroups at Summer Meeting, then again at President’s Meeting (where we also present to the members), Fall Meeting, and Congress (where we once more also present to the members). Transition and yearly goal-setting occur at Spring meeting. 

A short description of each position available is attached: CFES positions

We look forward to receiving your applications!
