The Engagers in Scottish history were a moderate faction of the Covenanter movement, who ruled Scotland during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms.
The Engagers sent an army to England to try and enfore this deal, but were routed by Cromwell at the battle of Preston in 1648.
The more radical Covenanters, known as the Kirk Party, insisted that any future deal with the King or other would have to include the public endorsment of their demands and not the secret promise of concessions in the future.

Not all Covenanters agreed with The Engagement and a large faction known as the Kirk party, strongly influenced by Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquess of Argyll were opposed, because King Charles refused to take the Covenant personally and they feared he would not honour the agreement if he were restored to power.
However the faction which supported The Engagement, known as The Engagers, outmaneuvered the Kirk party and organised an expeditionary army.
Neither of the more experienced Scottish Generals, Lord Leven or David Leslie, were willing to lead the army as they sided with Argyll, so the command was given to the less experienced Duke of Hamilton.

 Detailed guide to determining status: regular working for one engager
If that individual then begins to work virtually full-time for one engager the series of separate contracts with that engager may end and be replaced by a contract of employment.
Bear in mind though that someone starting in business may in practice work for the same engager under a series of contracts because he or she is unable to obtain contracts elsewhere.
If he or she continues to work in that vein but only manages to obtain work for part of the time through short-term contracts from one engager, the fact that only one engager is involved would not necessarily mean those engagements are employments.

On Bosnia, the selective engagers in the administration continued their public strategy to downplay the magnitude of the violence and characterize the conflict as one of ancient blood feuds.

Engagers are passionate learners who operate from the affective domain with a love for learning and who learn best when actively engaged in the learning in a meaningful manner.
On the Sensing-Intuition index, the Navigators (81.9) were strong on the Sensing side of the scale while the Problem Solvers (98.1) and the Engagers (95.2) were near the midpoint but also on the Sensing side of the scale.
The Problem Solvers are similar to the Engagers on Intuition and Perception, but they tend to rely more on making logical connections like the Navigators than on subjective feelings like the Engagers.

 1648: The Second Civil War: Battle of Preston
The Engager army that finally marched into Cumberland on 8 July was undermanned and very poorly equipped.
Although the Engagers were expected to attempt to force their way into Yorkshire, Hamilton eventually decided to march south through Lancashire, intending to join up with Lord Byron who was attempting to incite a Royalist uprising in north Wales.
But by the time the Engagers finally marched south from Cumberland and Westmorland, Lieutenant-General Cromwell was on his way up to Yorkshire from Pembroke.

July 20, 2004 - In the recent negotiation of the new National Commercial Agreement (NCA), ACTRA proposed, as it had successfully done in the IPA negotiations last May, that the engager contribution to insurance be increased by 1 point, giving members a 33% increase in insurance contributions (from 3% to 4%).
The engagers' response was unprecedented, alarming and inappropriate.
In the end, the engagers recognized this and accepted an ACTRA proposal to have all insurance and retirement plan contributions, including the equalization payments, paid directly to ACTRA rather than to AFBS.

 Hypermedia Joyce Studies: Erik Roraback
For one thing, the Wake invites new modalities of movement from its engagers, forms of mobility that exceed dominating and appropriating interpretive moves.
Yet this reading remains somewhat reductive in ignoring the notion of textual play from Joyce's reader, the engager who collides with the Joycean text in a fruitful way for her own creative counter-signatures.
But Bersani is right in implying that Joyce's compositional mobilities and contents invest in the idea of a work that might somehow redeem the reader's lack of cultural knowledge.
