Volunteer Opportunities
Competency Based Assessors - Multiple Positions
Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba is currently piloting the Competency Based Assessment (CBA) process with a small cohort of interns. CBA is conducted to determine if an applicant has progressed to a professional level of competency in their field of work experience, by asking applicants to use situational actions to demonstrate their achievements of the required competencies. Assessors will review submissions as well as validator feedback to provide ratings for each competency and then comment on the applicant's readiness for professional registration. We are looking for professional members from all disciplines to become assessors. Members in good standing in the following disciplines are the most needed; civil, mechanical (particularly manufacturing and HVAC), electrical, computer, project management/construction management, and aerospace. For more information on this opportunity, please see the call for volunteers.
Awards Committee - Multiple Positions
The Awards Committee is responsible for receiving nominations and selecting candidates from among Association practitioners so that professionals are recognized for their excellence by the Association at the annual Awards Gala. The Awards Committee also prepares nominations for submission to the Engineers Canada and Geoscientists Canada awards. The committee is currently looking for members who are well networked within the engineering and/or geoscience community, have a general working knowledge of the Association's award categories, and strong written communication skills.
