General Body Meeting
We will be having another meeting this week on Tuesday, February 12th at 6:30 pm in NSC 222. We will be going over updates to the club's constitution and we need to have as many people there as possible to vote on the changes. This should be the onyl time this needs to be done for most of you for your time at UB. We will also cover events for E-Week.
Engineers week will take place from February 18th to February 22nd. Throughout the week there are various events that all the engineering clubs host. Each event has points assigned to them for how well you do. The club with the most points at the end of the week receives money. We need people to sign up for as many events as possible, because we will get points just for participating in the events. Use the link to sign up. The events run for 2 hours, but they typically do not take that long so you can show up anytime in the 2 hour block. We will also need people to volunteer to help out with the 2 events we are running this year. The first is popsicle stick bridges on Monday, 2/18 from 10am-noon. The second will be helping construct the battlebot maze on Thursday, 2/14 starting at 5pm. We will be working on this until it is finished and should only take a few hours. SIGN UP!
