Provincial Engineering and Geoscience Week (PEGW) - Multiple Positions
March is National Engineering Month and, here in Manitoba, PEGW is held to promote engineering and geoscience as career choices, celebrate engineering and geoscience within our province, and to draw attention to the vital role that engineering and geoscience play in our daily lives. This year, PEGW will be recognized from March 1 to March 8 with events taking place at multiple schools within Winnipeg and at Kildonan Place Mall. Volunteers play a vital role in the success of this week and are needed for such events as the Spaghetti Bridge Competition, Association Booth, and Children's Activities.

Member Engagement Sessions - Future By-law Amendments - Changes to Retired Member Status - February 3 and February 12, 2020
Council invites all members to participate in an engagement session discussing the requirement to address incongruity between our Act and Bylaws, including By-law changes for 2020. Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba obtained advice from legal counsel regarding the legality of retired categories of membership. It was found that having retired categories is currently in contradiction with the Act. Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba is currently exploring options to eliminate contradictions between the By-laws and the Act while still maintaining services for retired members. We are seeking input from membership to determine the best course of action. For more information and to register, please visit the event page.
