Volunteer Opportunities
Discipline Committee - Committee Member
The Discipline Committee fulfills one of the core functions of Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba, as mandated by the Act and by-laws. Discipline Committee members determine, as a panel, whether a practitioner is guilty of professional misconduct or unskilled practice, and the appropriate penalties, if any are required. We are currently looking for a professional member (P.Eng. or P.Geo.) who has 10+ years of professional practice, knowledge of the Act and by-laws, some knowledge of the judicial process, and previous experience on EngGeoMB committees. Please see the full call for volunteers for details.
Nominating Committee - Multiple Positions
The Nominating Committee is looking for four new members: three professional members, one of which needs to be a professional geoscientist, and one intern (engineering or geoscience) who have a well-connected network with other professional members, an understanding of governance, succession planning, board/Council functions, as well as experience in the field of Human Resources. The Nominating Committee assists Council in identifying election candidates for councillors for the upcoming election, replacing any vacancies on Council who meet the criteria for councillors as described in the Governance Policy, in a manner consistent with the Act and by-laws, and takes into consideration the broadest possible diversity of the membership. Please see the call for volunteers for more information.
