Annual General Meeting & Retreat

WESST Annual Genearal Meeting & Retreat is a four-day conference held in October. It is typically held in a camp setting, amongst the serenity of woods and water bodies.

Typically, more than 70 student leaders from the eleven engineering universities in Western Canada attend this event which encourages collaboration on topics such as student issues, leadership development, and future engineering student governance. Event activities include the WESST Annual General Meeting, leadership development and organization management sessions, and team-building exercises. This all fosters further inspiration to improve student governance, resulting in more competent and socially aware engineers. Furthermore, it provides an informal networking system that can develop bonds between schools, mentorship opportunities, and exposure to various companies.

Winners of the WESST Olympics

Each year at our AGM we hold the WESST Olympics which pits each member society against each other in fun team building games. We select a winning society based on their energy, enthusiasm and sportsmanship and the winners are responsible for taking care of the WESST mascot (a concrete donkey named Debbie WESST) for the coming year.
