The Grand River Chapter PEO invites P.Engs and EITs to join us on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 from 9 - 11 am at Bingeman's Conference Center, Berkley Room, in Kitchener, for an interactive presentation regarding Threats to Our Engineering Profession.  

Registration is $10.  Light refresements will be served. Register for your tickets HERE.

Our speaker, Marilyn Spink, P.Eng., will discuss and address the following with your participation, so please bring your questions!

  • "Project Governance" and why it is critical Engineer's voices are heard in high level decision making to successfully execute large complex engineering projects

  • Why Engineers should always have a broad mindset of the definition of "Public Interest".

  • Clarification of the roles of the PEO and OSPE and why having these distinct & seperate organizations is beneficial to our engineering profession.

  • What we, as engaged Engineers, can do to evolve our profession, focusing on our regulatory mandate, so we can remain a strong & relevant, self-regulated profession.

Marilyn Spink, P.Eng, leads this engaging presentation through review of several key projects and disruptive technologies she has been directly involved with over her 30+ years engineering career. She will share a wide range of her experiences executing large, complex engineering projects such as steel plant upgrades in North America and Tunisia, mining backfill plants in India and the Northwest Territories including a mega project in Madagascar. Spink will then explain what compelled her to get involved with PEO Council at this stage of her career, and share with you some of what she has learned in 3 years on PEO Council - especially what she wish she had known about PEO earlier in her career! You will be encouraged to participate throughout her presentation as she facilitates a critical discussion on the current threats to our Engineering Profession and solicit your ideas on what we as Engineers can be doing to remain a strong self-regulated profession.

 Whether you are a P.Eng. or an EIT, this interactive presentation will provide an understanding of several current threats to the engineering profession and provide an open forum for all to “brainstorm” actions Engineers can take so we remain a strong self-regulated profession to “Own Our Future” or it may be owned by others.

Registration is $10.  Light Refreshments will be provided for attendees.
