On Monday, February 24, 2014 the EUS Council passed a motion to allow the Engineering Student Teams Council (ESTC), soon to be Engineering Design Teams Council (EDTC), to add a referendum question to the ballot at this year’s elections. The referendum question will propose an $2 student fee increase that will be used to benefit the design teams.
The wording of the referendum will be as follows:
Question: Do you approve the temporary addition of $2 to the Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS) fee for the next 5 years that would support the UBC Engineering Design Teams Council (EDTC)?
• Background and Clarification: This fee would provide an annual operating budget for the EDTC that would be used for shared resources for the teams and for all engineering students. Individuals may opt out with due cause by contacting the EDTC. The fee will exist for the next 5 years, at which point it will be removed unless another referendum approves an extension.
Questions can be directed to email@example.com.
Please bookmark this page, as it will be updated with more information regarding the referendum.

Yesterday an article was released in the Iron Warrior, a Waterloo publication, about Engineering Culture Shock.
Since an experience at CFES Congress, the UBC EUS has been trying to create change, at our own university and at the regional and national levels. We sent the following documents to representatives at other schools asking them sign on to support this action plan.
What do you think about this? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts.
