Proven Leadership

I volunteered with Darla Campbell on the PEO Government Liaison Committee (GLC) during her term as Chair. I was consistently impressed by the level of preparedness and organization that Darla brought to her role. Beyond chairing meetings she guided the committee through multiple transitions for the Government Liaison Program (GLP), facilitated additional sessions on visioning, and prepared workshops to train GLP volunteers at annual conferences.

Darla has the rare ability to encourage others to think of the big picture, but in so doing she remains focused on and aware of the important details and future obstacles. As a member of the committee, I was repeatedly inspired to bring my best to the table by her leadership and the example she set. Darla is a highly accomplished facilitator and preparing workshops and presentations with her was a fantastic opportunity for my own growth in public speaking which has been an asset in my engineering career.

It is evident that Darla cares about the future of the engineering profession, and I am lucky to have met someone so early in my career who was interested in supporting young engineers. I imagine that were she elected to lead PEO the direction she would set for our profession would have an eye to the future and position our profession for success.

Dedicated Leader

I have worked with Darla Campbell as a committee member  when she was the chair of the Government Liaison Committee of the 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.
