Lori Hogan, P. Eng.

Lori Hogan

Candidate's Statement

Throughout my academic and working careers, I have benefited greatly from the advice and experience of mentors. I feel I can now bring my unique experience, enthusiasm, and views to the position of Director.

Professional engineers are, first and foremost, responsible for safety and welfare of the general public. I think it is important that we make the public more aware of what it is engineers do and how we help society. I also think it is important that we share how diversity in our profession is beneficial to everyone. As an organization and educated individuals, we are capable of driving the innovation needed in this province today.

My experience with WISENL and IEEE has given me great familiarity with how a volunteer Board and its committees operate, but also how they should support and advocate for the membership.  I believe I can use this experience to help my peers and colleagues, working together with the team of PEGNL Board members.
