2015-2016 Elections

The time has come to elect the next QCESO executive committee! Do you want to get involved with Engineering student life on the provincial level? Do you have ideas on how to promote cooperation between Quebec’s Engineering student societies? Do you want to represent 17’000 Engineering undergraduates in front of important groups in the province of Quebec? If so, you’re probably a good candidate for the 2015-2016 QCESO executive committee.

Interested candidates have until May 1st to submit a cover letter, along with a letter of support from your Engineering student society. If your local society cannot supply a letter of support, it can be replaced by letters of support from two other QCESO member societies. Candidates can then present their platform to the assembly at the Annual Congress taking place in Rouyn-Noranda from May 8th-10th 2015.
Applications are open for the following positions:

President
“The president is the chief executive officer of the Confederation. He convokes the Executive Committee and Director Committee assemblies. He sees to the execution of the Board of Directors’ decisions and signs and signs any documents requiring his signature. He represents the Confederation and presides official hosting. He is part ex-officio of all committee councils and commissions. He fills inherent responsibilities of the vacant officers. He fills all the inherent duties at his expense as well as he exercises all the powers which can be attributed to him from time to time by the Board of Directors and the Caucus.”

Executive Vice-President
“The executive vice-president is present for general assemblies, Board of Directors’, Caucus’, and Director’s committee’s assemblies, and writes all the reports. He is given custody of the Confederation’s seal, of the report’s register and all other corporate registers. He fills all the inherent duties at his expense as well as he exercises all the powers which can be attributed to him from time to time by the Board of Directors and the Caucus. The executive vice-president assists the president in his functions. In case of absence or incapacity to act of the president of the Confederation, the executive vice-president replaces him and exercises all the powers and all functions.”

Vice-President of Financial Affairs
“The vice-president of financial affairs has the responsibility and the guarding of the Confederation’ capital and account books. He holds a precise statement of the assets and liabilities as well as the receipts paid out by the Confederation, in one or several books and registers that were suited to this end. He deposits in a financial institution determined by the Board of Directors. He fills all the inherent duties at his expense as well as he exercises all the powers which can be attributed to him from time to time by the Board of Directors and the Caucus. For lack of the president and the executive vice-president, the vice-president of financial affairs replaces the president of the Confederation and exercises all the powers and all functions.”

Vice-President of Student Affairs
“The vice-president of student affairs is responsible for the execution of mandates relative to the defence of the students, as much on the academic plane as for any other subject of the public domain. He fills all the inherent duties at his expense as well as exercises all the powers which can be attributed to him from time by the Board of Directors and the Caucus.”

Vice-President of Internal Affairs
“The vice-president of internal affairs is present for general assemblies, Board of Directors’, Caucus’, and Director’s committee’s assemblies. He is responsible for maintaining constant communication between the QCESO executive committee and the member societies. He is in charge of overseeing the logistical preparation of congresses alongside the hosting society, and ensures that member societies understand the issues to be discussed at these congresses. He is responsible for maintaining a presence among the members, namely by touring the member societies, and must act as a contact between the QCESO executive committee and the member societies. He fills all the inherent duties at his expense as well as exercises all the powers which can be attributed to him from time by the Board of Directors and the Caucus. In case of absence or incapacity to act of the vice-president of internal affairs, the executive vice-president replaces him and exercises all the powers and all functions.”
