Dear Mississauga Chapter members:
I am Brett Chmiel, chair of the Mississauga chapter for 2016. I have been with the chapter for more than 8 years. I have served as Education Committee chair and Licence Presentation Committee chair. In those roles, I brought new ideas and energy to existing programs. This included a more structured and organized event for the Mathletics and Bridge Building Challenge held for grade school students each year. I introduced a formal meal and biography introduction for licence recipients at the Licence Presentation Ceremony.
Going forward, I am working to increase involvement by chapter members in our events. This includes technical seminars that should be of interest to a wider audience. The greatest benefit of the chapter is the access it gives members to each other. Chapter events are an opportunity to meet engineers in your field and learn more about other companies and industries.
Finally, if you have an idea for a chapter event please contact me.
I also encourage members to be more active in the governance of PEO and I am interested in how you think we can make this happen.
Brett Chmiel, P.Eng.
