As engineers we know that working together is a building block of success. OSPE represents the efforts of Ontario’s engineers to have a collective, broader, thoughtful and influential voice with the public, government, business and regulators.
OSPE has become an effective advocate for our profession, but more can be done to address the challenges and opportunities associated with membership services; government relations, advocacy, professional development and our relationship with the PEO.
The Board’s role is to ensure CEO effectiveness; oversee and monitor the affairs of the organization; and establish (with the CEO) an effective strategy. Board members must understand their governance role. We’ve seen many examples of how organizations (private, public, not-for-profit) have tarnished their reputations and lost their way because of poor governance from ineffective boards.
I currently serve of the Board Directors of the Technical Standards and Safety Authority. As a previous OSPE Board member I have an excellent understanding OSPE’s challenges and opportunities. In 2012, I completed the Director’s College program and obtained the Charter Director’s designation. I have specific governance skills and education to contribute to the Board’s effectiveness and OSPE’s success. To be effective in discharging their responsibilities Board’s must possess a matrix of skills. As a board member I can contribute skills and expertise that includes: corporate governance, strategy development, risk management, government relations, regulatory management, stakeholder engagement, strategic alliance development and human resources management. I have spent the largest part of my career in roles that required developing collaboration and consensus among diverse interest groups. These skills will help me fulfill my responsibilities as a Board member in service to OSPE and its membership.
