The campaign kicked off with the All Candidate Meetings at PEO headquarters on January 8th for the Vice President Candidates. Barry Steinberg was the moderator for the session and the questions ranged from the most important values of leadership to which of the recommendations in the Cayton Report are the top priorities for implementation.

Brampton Chapter hosted their license ceremony and AGM on January 23rd where they presented 24 new license holders with their certificates.
On January 25th, Lake Ontario Chapter hosted their AGM and license ceremony which also recognized 24 new license holders. At dinner I met two new P.Eng.’s and their families. After dinner I met three women who received their certificates and talked about the 30 by 30 initiative.
During my two minute campaign pitch, I took the opportunity to ask the new P.Eng.’s in the room to stand and be recognized. There was an enthusiastic round of applause! I shared with the audience that I chose engineering because it provided an opportunity to be part of a profession, a profession which I am very proud to be a part of, each and every day. Now it is time for me to contribute my skills at the table of PEO Council to ensure that we continue to modernize the operations as a world class regulator, prepared to meet the challenges ahead.
I wished all new P.Eng.’s great success in their journey.
