MEIA Student Chapter Programming

Student Chapter Recruitment Night

Kicking off the year, the Student Chapter Recruitment Night is usually held the second or third week in September. University & College students join the Student Chapter chair and MEIA staff to find out about what’s new for the year ahead and the benefits of MEIA Student Chapter membership. Learn about upcoming events and sign up to be on the Student Chapter executive committee. The next Student Chapter Recruitment Night will be September 2022.

Speed Mentoring

Speed mentoring is a riff on speed dating that allows students to meet multiple mentors in a short time. Students come prepared to ask mentors in the environmental industry specific questions about careers within the industry. As they move from table to table, they are able to meet with a variety of mentors throughout the evening. This event is held twice a year, in the fall and spring. The next Speed Mentoring Night is scheduled for October 28, 2021 at 7:00 pm (virtually). Student Chapter members register for free! Non-members register for $5.

Discovery Night

The Student Chapter Discovery Night provides an opportunity for students to participate in workshops led by industry experts and network with professionals working in the environmental industry. Mentors are on site to provide valuable insight on how to improve your resume and elevator pitch. Dress for success and bring your business cards and resumes! The next Discovery Night is scheduled for February 3, 2022 at 5:00pm.

Sustainability Tours

In February and/or March, the Student Chapter organizes tours of sustainable organizations or initiatives in Manitoba. The number of tours organized depends on health restrictions and availability.
