Leadership

Darla Campbell, P.Eng.
Candidate for PEO President-Elect

Visionary leader with a proven record of accomplishment in business and the community provides PEO with the best choice for President-Elect in the 2021 election. Darla Campbell has demonstrated leadership from the trenches of a construction site to the boardrooms of organizations.

I have worked with Darla Campbell as a committee member  when she was the chair of the Government Liaison Committee of PEO and the Chair of the Strategy, Policy and Innovation Committee of the Canadian National Exhibition Association.

I always found that Darla was well prepared and organized for each meeting that she was chairing.    She had an excellent grasp of issues and was very capable in communicating a vision and way forward for success.   She did this in a collaborative manner that was always very respectful and appreciative of comments made at meetings that brought out the best in team members.

Darla is a hard working dedicated leader who is needed to help PEO to build upon its current strengths and to address current PEO shortcoming that could allow the PEO to be  aimed toward being a world class regulator. 

I encourage you to vote for Darla Campbell.

Jim Chisholm, M.Eng., P.Eng, FEC, Former Chair of the West Toronto Chapter of the PEO,  Former Vice President of the Professional Engineers of the Government of Ontario (PEGO) and Former Board Member of the OSPE Board.

I chose engineering because it offered the opportunity to become part of a profession. After 27 years of licensure in PEO, I continue to wear the P.Eng. designation with pride.

I’m running in this election to build the value of professional engineers in Ontario.

My commitment is to enhance the value of your license from EIT through all stages of your professional career.
