Candidate Statement


My interest in serving on OSPE’s Board of Directors stems from efforts to continue raising awareness of OSPE and Ontario engineers at the government, public, and industry level and making contributions to the OSPE and engineering community by serving on number of committees, and being an outreach volunteer and mentor to many junior engineers.  I also believe that engineering profession is very important to the economic and social well-being of society.  It motivates me to advocate and volunteering in the engineering community and professional associations.

I will continue my initiatives and dedication to the engineering profession as I have made a measurable impact over the past 10 years as a passionate advocate for engineering profession, new engineering graduates, and internationally trained engineers.  It is necessary to grow OSPE membership to grow the profession’s influence, and serving on OSPE’s Board of Directors will allow me to increase awareness of issues affecting engineers today.  We need to be able to bring our concerns and contributions to the public’s attention, as well as connect with decision makers to influence change.  Thank you and I look forward to serving with you.
