From the Delegates' Booklet:

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to Engineers Without Borders' second annual conference on Technology and Development. The response thus far has been extraordinary: over 300 people will spend the next three days discussing and learning about the role of technology in development, making this one of the largest such gatherings in Canada.

EWB has come a long way since our inception three years ago, when we were merely an idea - that engineers in Canada could use their skills to help people in developing communities. Today we are a reality for the 250 delegates here, our 2500 members across Canada, and thousands of people in the communities in which we and our partners work. This achievement has depended on the dedication and enthusiasm of our members, and we thank you for your efforts and your belief in the potential of EWB.

It is exciting being part of something that is bigger than any one of us - knowing that there are people across the country, from St. John's to Victoria, who share a common vision. Together, we are building an organisation that will outlast us all. Each and every one of us will be able to point to it with pride, and tell our kids: I was there at the beginning - I helped build that.
