Description: For the past several years, various initiatives have been undertaken to attract and recruit students to CSBE/SCGAB. At best, some of these initiatives have generated temporary spikes in enrolment without long-term retention. Given the current situation where professional registration requires a commitment to on-going professional development, why does our technical society struggle to attract and retain engineers working in industry? This presentation will discuss the challenges facing CSBE/SCGAB and identify several ideas which may enable transformation of our technical society.
