I will push to reduce membership fees while in parallel advocating to increase membership services. I propose to conduct a value for money review of the PEO’s operations with the goal of limiting future increases in membership fees. Furthermore, I will advocate for a mentoring program and a review of the licensing process. The current process is unnecessarily bureaucratic, inflexible and difficult for applicants; simply put we are not onboarding new engineers into the PEO in a welcoming and supportive way. I will also work to revise the Bulletin to keep engineers informed of recent issues and lessons learned from important events such as Elliott Lake. I do not believe there is a conflict between creating a service based and customer focused organization and the PEOs statutory mandate to protect the public interest. Helping engineers to join, develop and be more aware of current events only improves the public interest.
