Corporate Relations Director
The Corporate Relations Director is a position charged with overseeing the EUS' relationships with sponsors and businesses. This includes running a sponsorship workshop at EUS Conference, hold meetings with internal sponsorship and external relations position holders, and upholding existing relations with sponsors.
History of the Position
In 2018, the duties of the role were absorbed by the VP Finance and the role dissolved. In 2019, the role was reprised through the mandate of then board member Fiona Hamilton and the VP Finance, Thomas Hillyer, with a new plan and focus on connecting internal groups to external companies.
The Evolution of Engineering mural was completed in May 2015 by a small team of EUS students.
Design Team Director
The DT Director is the main point of contact between Design Teams, the EUS, Faculty and external organizations. The role includes representing Design Teams on various committees (Workshop Safety Committee, Design Team Fund Committee, Student Space Fund), working closely with the VP Student Life to oversee administrative responsibilities and dealing with issues that might arise pertaining to Design Teams on an ad-hoc basis.
External Relations Director
The External Relations Director is a position dedicated to assisting the EUS VP External in liaising with other engineering schools on both the provincial (CREIQ/QCESO) and national (CFES) scale. This consists of attending the various annual events / conferences, as well as the power to proxy for the VP External and vote on behalf of the EUS.
The External Relations Director must be fluent in both English and French, as a majority of the correspondences from CREIQ are in French.
The position of Finance Director involves taking care of three aspects of the EUS Finances: The budget, the online payments through Yapsody and the guardianship. Although the role is formally described in the financial bylaws, it tends to change every year depending on what special projects there are and depending on the VP Finance's and the Finance Director's prefered areas of focus.
The EUS makes its budget by asking each group for their budget three times a year: during the summer, the fall and the winter. It is the Finance Director's job to collect the budget and to answer questions regarding individual budgets. Then, the Finance Director compiles all the budgets into the EUS operational budget and presents it to the Board of Governors for approval.
The Finance director is in charge of managing everything related to online payments. This includes creating new events on Yapsody, making the deposits in the EUS account and helping the event organizers by answering their questions about the system.
The final duty of the Finance Director is to monitor the groups that are placed under guardianship in order to make sure that their balance goes back to positive after a year.
The Funds Director is charged with maintaining and organizing the various funds managed by the EUS. They act as chair of the Design Team Fund Committee, Clubs Fund Committee, and Short Term Student Space Fund Committee. As such, the Funds Director promotes the current state of the EUS funds, publicizes applications as they become available, and assists in coordinating fund allocation arbitration.
As well as managing the EUS publications committee, The Publications Director Portfolio includes the fulfillment of personal projects related to writing during its mandate, such as to engage with engineering students and create a sense of community around the EUS publications. Past writing projects include The Plumber's Inkwell, a creative writing anthology gathering poetry and short stories from McGill engineering students.
The Plumber's Ledger is an entirely student-run publication at McGill University which publishes magazines on a monthly basis through the Engineering Undergraduate Society of McGill University (EUS), providing an in-depth and completely different perspective on campus issues, technology, and many more topics. The publication's director assists and promotes the Plumber's Ledger by making sure that the platforms, stands and outreach material is continuously updated.

The Plumber's Faucet is a satirical publication that publishes different kinds of creative works such as short stories, comic strips, and illustrations, covering topics about on-campus events and the everyday life of an engineering student. The Plumber's Faucet also started the Plumber's Tap, a comedy show that showcases student and Montreal comedy performances in the basement of the McConnell Engineering Building. The publications director provides insight on the monthly issues before being published and guides the EIC on future outreach plans.
