Canadian Engineering Leadership Conference (CELC)
CELC is a national conference for engineering students in Canada. Over the course of 7 days delegates have the chance to really develop themselves as students, as people, and as leaders. There are a variety of sessions, seminars, and workshops for delegates to attend that cover everything from industry connections, to student advocacy. For the VP Communications this is a chance to represent Waterloo on a national level, and ensure that the national advocacy, and services that the CFES provides is in the best interests of the students. A week of new experiences, and wonderful people, a great chance to learn and enjoy all that the engineering community has to offer.
