So, in this email, you're gonna find two documents attached:
- Our 2015-16 Exec Structure! There's a couple of changes from last year's - the most prominent being that the role of Youth Engagement lead is a VP position again. After a follow-up discussion, we felt that this decision was best not only for the YE team, but also benefited the rest of the chapter. If you've got any lingering questions or concerns, feel free to reach out, and we can chat.
- The Exec Application itself!
I encourage everybody to review it and use the application form that's attached to apply for any position that you're interested in. You're allowed to apply for multiple positions, so please list all the ones you're interested in pursuing on the application.
Applications are due on Wednesday February 25h at 11:59pm, and please send them to BOTH email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interviews will most probably be held the weekend of February 27th - March 1st, and an e-mail will be sent out to figure out the times.
I recognize that we have a looooot of new members this year, so I really encourage anyone who might be interested to at least apply and not to feel intimidated. I've seen each and everyone of you step up throughout the year, so I know you have the potential to do amazing things. Plus, you'll be given all the support you need to succeed in your roles.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me or Shivani, or stop and chat at anytime.
Thank you, and enjoy the rest of your Reading Week :)

Bono thanks Canadians for foreign aid contributions

uwoewb EWB is concerned about the information presented in today's article from the Ottawa Citizen and what this means for Canada's role in the post-2015 development agenda.
The decline in the Government of Canada's contribution to ODA points to a troubling trend. This, despite 2015 polling data that shows the majority of Canadians not only believe it's important to improve health, education and economic opportunity for the world's poorest people, but that doing so is our moral obligation as Canadians.
EWB would like to see Canada reverse this trend and increase our investment in global poverty reduction with an eye towards the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
