Thank you for this fabulous opportunity to serve you, it is my privilege and honor to serve you all, as the president of our section in 2022/2023.
I would also like to extend my appreciation to my fellow board members who volunteer their time and talents to keep our section in good standing and especially to our 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 Board of Directors, led by Paul Bouzanne and Arvid Markus, who led our section through the pandemic and supported the growth of our section, and its main role in delivering value to all our members through a very challenging time.
Several opportunities will be available throughout the 2022-2023 term to meet for learning and development, as well as to network with other professionals within our industry, our section is planning to fully return to in-person technical dinner meetings which will be a great opportunity to develop, learn, share knowledge, and network with fellow professionals.
One of our goals for this term is to host a conference here in Calgary on April 2023. The theme for this year’s conference is “The Future of Project Controls” It will be a great 2-day event full of learning and networking opportunities, the call for speakers is open now, We are looking for speakers and professionals who will share their views on and bring forth insights and thoughts on how the project Controls profession will develop and advance in the future, if you are interested to speak and share your knowledge and experience or you know someone, please submit an application here, please also share it with your network.
