Looking Back Through Our Century: June 1962
Nearly six decades after the first launch on June 15, 1962, the Black Brant rockets are "classics" and still soar into the skies. To learn more about this Winnipeg-built sounding rocket named after the Canada Goose species, see the full news story.
All practitioners are encouraged to share their input in this year's Practitioner Survey, which is now available online. The survey is anonymous, should take no more than five minutes to complete, and the feedback provided is invaluable as the Association strives to continue to grow and support our practitioners.
With the announcement by the Manitoba government that mass gatherings such as concerts, festivals, and major sporting events will not be considered before September 2020 and taking into account the ongoing travel restrictions, the large number of guests invited, as well as the physical distancing recommendations for public spaces, the Association has decided it is prudent to cancel the previously postponed Centennial Recognition Gala. While we are disappointed, with this uncertainly we are unable to guarantee that our event could occur in the celebratory format we planned to mark this momentous occasion. All previously purchased tickets and sponsorships will be refunded by the end of June.
Volunteer Opportunities
As part of the Association's Centennial Community Outreach, we have sponsored a Habitat for Humanity Build Day. We are looking for approximately 30 volunteers who are available for the full day. No previous experience or equipment is needed. All that is required is a positive attitude and a willingness to learn! Lunch will be provided for all volunteers. COVID-19 protocols will be followed on the jobsite at all times. For more information and to register, see the event listing.
Online Professional Development Opportunities
This 30-minute webinar, offered by Engineers and Geoscientists BC, will focus on how adaptive leadership can help individuals and organizations learn anew and thrive during this crisis period. For more information, see the event listing.
Join the Manitoba Community of Women in Engineering, Science, Trades, and Technology (MCWESTT) for their speaker series on the differences between genders in speaking up to power, presented by Jackie Gruber. This session will consist of a one-hour presentation followed by a Q&A. For more information and to register, see the event listing.
