Annual Report from Manitoba Regional Director 2014-2015

It was a fun and challenging year as Manitoba Regional Director. I have participated in all of the Council and membership engagement committee meetings. The major success of our Manitoba region is the creation of a very vibrant CSBE student chapter at university of Manitoba. The student chapter helped me a lot in organizing regional activities. Manitoba section of CSBE organized a networking BBQ at University of Manitoba on September 9, 2014 along with CSBE Undergraduate Student Chapter and Biosystems Engineering Graduate Students’ Association (BEGSA). I have also invited executive members of CIFST (Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology) and 6 executives from CIFST participated in this networking event. The total attendance for this event was 98, which include graduate and under graduate students, academic members of department of Biosystems engineering and industry members. I also participated in Manitoba School Science Symposium (MSSS), the showcase event for school students to display their scientific knowledge. To create awareness about our Biosystems engineering to school students, CSBE awards have been given to the projects related to bioengineering field.  Four CSBE members (Tasneem Vahora, Annette Kroeker, Senthilkumar Thiruppathi and Aadesh Rahkra) helped me to choose 2 projects CSBE awards (one each from junior and senior category) out of 358 projects displayed in MSSS.

This is my final report as Manitoba regional director, and I sincerely thank all the volunteers helped me to organize regional activities in last 5 years. I am looking forward to work with our incoming Manitoba Regional Director.
