As part of the committee restructuring implementation process, we have created an on-line committee application form, which is now active.   Applications will be accepted for the Society Standing Committees and their constituent committees through April 19th.   A committee member whose term is due to expire will need to apply if they wish to be considered for reappointment.   We hope to attract interest from more of our younger members, government engineers, etc. Please encourage your members to apply as soon as possible since many of the appointments must be approved by the Board of Direction at their July meeting.
