Newsletter #9: Top Ten List
by Julia Wai on Nov 3, 2013 - 6:37 PM EST

Since Marc on our Communications Team has started tweeting for the chapter (follow us @EWBMcGIll), he has become really talented with writing under 140 characters. With that in mind, I give you my top ten acronyms (a la David Letterman)

10) D.A.N.C.E (Whatever it means, Justice makes it sound so good!)

9) G.O.O.G.L.E. (General Oblivion and Omnipotent Guide to Lots of Everything)

8) D.I.G.B.Y. (Did I Go Broke Yet?)

7) I.T.A.L.Y. (I Trust And Love You)

6) C.R.A.P. (Career Review Action Plan)

5) P.R.I.M.E. (Park Right In the Middle of Everything)

4) F.A.R.T. (Fire Alarm Response Team)

3) D.A.F.T (Dust and Aerosol measurement Feasibility Test)

2) E.W.B. (do I really need to say what this means?)

1) T.R.A.C.E.  and P.W.Y.P.

Say what? The TRansparent and ACCountable Extractives campaign is the newest, latest thing from the Advocacy branch of EWB.  Hand-in-hand with Publish What You Pay Canada, this campaign will emphasize the importance of making transparent disclosure practices mandatory for the extractives sector and a part of provincial policy.  Save the date - November 18th to December 5th!

This Monday's chapter meeting will be held at 17:30 in The Cellar (Architecture Lounge, basement of McDonald Harrington).  Every Monday our chapter meetings alternate between "learning sessions" and "action meetings".  In this week's meeting, we will be diving into EWB's upcoming five-year direction with full-time EWB staffers and focusing on what opportunities this will bring for our chapter . It's gonna be a good one!

Our African Connections group meets every two weeks to learn about EWB's work in Africa on a deeper level. This week, we'll be hearing some updates from their latest team meeting in August in Nairobi. Each of our seven lovely African Programs Staff will update you on what they've been up to in this interesting and informative 40-minute video. This is a never-before-seen window into the life of our African Programs, so don't miss out! Meet on Tuesday at 14:30pm in the Engineering Common Room.
