Candidates for this year’s election

 

President 

AETTNL Council and General Membership of AETTNL

I wish to thank all members of AETTNL, Executive Council and Staff, for your support this past year in serving as your President.

Despite the challenges and restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic, I am pleased to report that work has continued on your behalf, specifically with our fellow Provincial Associations across Canada to re-establish and achieve a singular national organization, Technology Professional Canada, that represents and actively promotes the technology profession, nationally and internationally.  Refining AETTNL office operations, Member Certifications, efforts to advance Right to Title Legislation and improving services to AETTNL Members continue thanks to the dedication and efforts of Council, AETTNL staff and many volunteers.

While much has been accomplished this past year, there is still much to do.  With your support, I again offer myself for the position of President of AETTNL for the 2021-2022 business year to continue working for AETTNL.

I have been an active member of AETTNL since 1991, serving on several Councils, serving on PR and Stakeholders Committees, serving as your Vice-President and currently serving as your President.  With this experience, the knowledge of the issues and challenges facing AETTNL and the support of my colleagues on Council and Staff, my commitment will be to continue to work to the best of my abilities to serve and protect the best interests of AETTNL.

Respectfully requesting your support,

Stephen G. Badcock, A.Sc.T.

 

Vice President

Esteemed Colleagues:

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Vice-President this past year; and to work with the executive, council, and administrative staff to advance your provincial and national interests.  I thoroughly enjoyed working in the role to support your interests, and to promote AETTNL in every capacity.

I believe in the value of our association – you the members, and our administration – and want to continue working for you in the VP leadership role for another year.  The important work of continuing support for our right-to-title legislation, development and implementation of our strategic plan, and working to reunite the national body for the betterment of our association and profession is paramount; and I want to keep working to ensure these goals become a reality.  In consideration of this, and my passion for our great association, I am submitting my name as a candidate for Vice-President.

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please forward them to vice-president@aettnl.com.

Sincerest Regards,

Newton Pritchett, BTech., PTech., IntET(Canada)

 

Councillor – Central

AETTNL Members,

Please accept this letter and my intention to put my name forward for the Councilor – Central opening that you currently have at AETTNL as observed in the summer bulletin.
I have been a member of the AETTNL for the past 8 years, since 2013 when I obtained my P.Tech designation. I graduated from the Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering Technology program at College of the North Atlantic in 2009 and have been employed as a Technologist for 12+ years.
Below is a small biography from the time my career started to where I am today.
 I started out as a CNC machine operator and sheet metal fabricator working in the oil patch in Alberta for 2 years.
 From this, I moved on to structural design during the construction phase of the Long Harbour project in Newfoundland for 2 years.
 When the Long Harbour project was winding down (and my family starting expanding) I secured a position at a St. John’s based general contractor/construction company as an estimator and project coordinator for 4 years.
 My career path then moved me to be an estimator at a local offshore oil and gas engineering and construction company for 3 years.
 On the heels of the latest oil and gas downturn, I secured my latest position where I work for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans as a Project Support Technologist, supporting the Small Craft Harbours program where we are responsible for wharf construction and maintenance for the fishing industry.
Jumping into this sort of support role at AETTNL seems like a natural step for me. The Association has opened up many doors for my career since I joined and I believe that I would not be where I am today without it.
This seems like a great opportunity to learn more about the Association and, in turn, help teach others about the benefits of joining. I also welcome the opportunity to assist the AETTNL committee and it’s members however I can for the continued progression of the Association.

Thank you for your consideration,
Mark Maloney, P.Tech

 

Councillor – Labrador

AETTNL Members,

Please accept this letter as my intention to run for Councillor – Labrador. I have been a member of AETTNL since 2016 when I was awarded a CET designation. I have been a technologist since 2005 when I completed the Geomatics Engineering Technology Program. I also completed my Bachelor of Technology at Memorial University in 2008. I am currently working with the Federal Government with National Defense as a civilian. I am the Senior Project Manager for engineering contractors at 5Wing Goose Bay in Labrador. I moved here from Alberta and have been working in the engineering technology field since 2005. I’ve spent over 10 years working on various projects throughout BC, Alberta & Manitoba. I also currently serve as a Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC) auditor recently completing audits for Cambridge College and NBCC. I am a member of the local 1208 ILUNA since 2009 as a Geomatics Technologist, and I’ve been on projects such as Long Harbor & Muskrat Falls in NL. By moving into this position I hope to increase access for fellow and future technology members to the benefit of joining our association. Being at a workplace that has a large number of association members present, I would be a great voice for our association.

Thank you for your consideration
David Burke, CET
