CBS-KSC Annual General Meeting

Our annual general meeting was held this Wednesday August 16 at 1:30 pm. We were very lucky to have the Queen’s Biomedical Innovation Team (QBiT), a student-run engineering design team at Queen’s, give us a talk about their team and all of the projects they’ve been working on! Please check our their Facebook page and website to see all of the interesting things they’ve been working on! We look forward to collaborating with their team on future seminars and design challenges.

Following the seminar, Gad gave a presentation on the work of CBS-KSC to date. We have been very busy for the last 9 months, and it was nice to see all that we have accomplished as a new chapter so far. The election was then held to decide on the 2018 executive team. These team members will have the next 4 months to get training and transition into their new roles. We are sad to say that our president, Gad Sabbatier, and our secretary, William Chaplin, will be leaving us at the end of the month, so their positions will be filled immediately by the incoming executive team. Thank you, Gad and Liam, for all of your hard work in CBS-KSC’s first 9 months!
