CSCE Branch Policy
The CSCE Board of Directors has adopted a Branch Policy Statement concerning the formation and operations of CSCE Branches. The policy states that any group of 15 or more individual CSCE members-in-good-standing (excluding students) residing in close proximity in a single foreign country or special administrative region who are registered with and paying dues to the CSCE National Office (Montreal) may submit a proposal, with a signed petition, to create a Branch. The applicants should send the proposal and petition to the VP-International for review. If upon review the proposal is deemed acceptable, the VP-International will present the proposal to the CSCE Board of Directors (which normally meets twice a year) for a decision as to whether to create the branch. For further information on CSCE’s Branch Policy Statement, please contact the VP-International.
Travelling to Hong Kong?
The CSCE is looking for volunteers to make technical presentations to members of the CSCE Hong Kong Branch and (or) the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). This is strictly on a volunteer basis, with no payment for spent time or travel expenses.
