The Mississauga Chapter of Professional Engineers Ontario is planning a conference entitled “Engineers as Managers – An Owners’ perspective on Capital Engineering Projects” scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd, 2014. A similar conference was held in 2010 and it was a resounding success that was very beneficial to chapter members. Based on the experience we gained from executing that event (over 350 attended the one-day seminar), we hope to build an even better conference this year.
The main purpose of this conference is to enable engineers to become successful managers. One area of project engineering is managing a project on behalf of an owner and this conference will focus on this aspect in great detail. Contractual requirements, cause of litigation, and managing delays will be discussed. Engineers will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with corporate leaders and learn first-hand how to be an effective manager. Business experts will share their wealth of knowledge through panel discussions and seminars.
This event is a great opportunity to network and exchange ideas. The event will be of considerable value to those who contemplate becoming, or already are, managers and directors. Participants will learn the value of managerial spirit for self-promotion at a workplace benefiting their current employers.

The Mississauga Chapter is launching a Licensure Assistance Program in your area. This program is designed to link licensed Professional Engineers (Guides) with Engineering Interns to provide guidance and support to the intern as he/she progresses towards professional licensure status.
Volunteers (Guide/Mentors) are the lifeblood of PEO and participating through the association can be a very rewarding experience that provides on-going professional skills development.
This Licensure Assistance Program is expected to run from June 15, 2014 to Dec. 15, 2014. You would be expected to meet with your Guide/Intern for at least 2 hours a month over that time period and to provide feedback to the Chapter.
Your valuable experience is needed to help guide a young intern to licensure. Volunteer to be a part of this great, new initiative!
For more information and to apply (Guide and Intern- by April 25th), please click on PEO Licensure Assistance Program.
NOTE: If you have already registered for the Licensure Assistance Program in the past (as a guide or intern), you do not need to register again. Please contact Rishi Kumar and you will be provided with your login details.
Limited Space Available.
