For the position of Director (non-executive)

Tracey Eisan, P. Eng.

Candidate's Statement:

I am grateful for the opportunity to be nominated to serve on the Board of Directors of PEGNL. This being my first year as a professional member, I believe that I will be able to bring a renewed perspective to the Association.

I have worked in an engineering capacity in Malawi, Africa, in my hometown of Calgary, in New Brunswick and most recently in Newfoundland and Labrador. My broad range of experience across the country and internationally has provided me with exposure to unique organizations and engineering challenges. I look forward to applying these experiences and skills to the benefit of the Association.

For the past four years, I have been working as a consulting engineer in Gander, NL. As the manager of the municipal engineering division, I am responsible for providing a wide range of engineering services to both rural and urban municipalities. I have a particular interest in rural Newfoundland & Labrador communities, including provision of safe drinking water and wastewater, protecting the interests of the public in rural settings, and providing innovative solutions for engineering problems.

I believe that PEGNL is an important institution for maintaining high professional standards, continuous learning, and encouraging the involvement of young professionals. As a member of the Board, I look forward to providing a voice for young professionals and the rural community, as well as contributing to PEGNL activities. It is an honour to be considered for this position.

Thank you for your consideration.
