October 10, 2018
Letter to the AETTNL Nomination Committee
Re: AETTNL Election for the Position of Councillor for Eastern, NL
I would like to be considered during the upcoming election for the position of Councillor, Eastern Region, NL.
I have been a certified member of the Association of Engineering Technicians and Technologists of Newfoundland and Labrador since 1986. Throughout the past twelve years I have played a more active role in the activities of the Association. During this time, I have served as a Board Member representing both the Eastern and Labrador Regions and is currently the representative for AETTNL on the CTAB Board of Directors, a position I have held for the past 5 years.
I believe that my experience and knowledge of AETTNL is an asset and by maintaining an active role as Councillor on the Board, I will be able to assist the President in future endeavors and objectives for our association as set out in its Constitution and By-Laws.
I appreciate your accepting this letter as my application for this position, and I look forward to hearing from the Committee in the near future.
Edward Mercer, CET, RHI
Nomination Letter for Eastern Area 2:
I have supported our association since helping with student recruitment nearly a decade ago. Some of you may remember when I served as President for the College of the North Atlantic’s engineering technology campus on Ridge Road; it is that same energy and enthusiasm I intend to focus on the goals of our members. It is privilege to help, and I have been fortunate to be a part of successful fundraising campaigns that have together raised more than $161 thousand for several registered charities in our province.
We have discussed legislation to recognize our association–and our professional designations–for many years: I will work tirelessly to move that forward. Most importantly, I would like to meet you, learn what is important to you, and help our association support you. Successful groups are based on cooperation, respect, and ambition to achieve more together. With your support, I hope to be a part of that team. Thank you for considering me to serve on your council.
Robert Miller, PTech
