ASET Spring 2020 - 10

Message
from the
Acting Registrar
Melanie Leaf

It is my daunting privilege to serve as your Acting Registrar and Director of Practice. A privilege because it is truly
an honour to support such an extraordinary group of professionals; daunting, because I find myself following in the
footsteps of Jennifer Bertrand, whose tenure was marked
by extraordinary progress and significant improvements in
many areas.
With that in mind, perhaps I should take a moment to introduce myself.
I came to ASET in 2014, spending two years as Regulatory
Compliance Officer, a role similar to what I had done previously at the municipal government level. Early on, my focus
included supporting our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program, an initiative near and dear to my heart,
as I am a strong supporter of continuous education.
In 2016, I was promoted to manager. I began running the
CPD Program, as well as supporting the regulatory boards
and committees. I was also managing the investigative, discipline and appeal processes, as well as the application and
compliance procedures for the ASET Permit to Practice.
Appointed as the Deputy Registrar in 2018, I remained responsible for the regulatory volunteer boards and committees and the CPD Program, and took on the responsibility
of overseeing the Boards of Examiners, as well as the complaints, investigative, discipline and appeal processes.
I have a strong understanding of what is required of me, so
for now, the transition will be smooth. We are sure you will
not notice any negative impact on our service standards.
As I settle in to my first full month in my new role, my priority is to keep up the great momentum we have going. I am
blessed to work with a very strong Registration Services
team, and our continued success will depend, in part, on
my continuing to support their outstanding efforts.

I can assure you the team is hard at work continuing to modernize our registration processes in an effort to make it as
simple and clear as possible to renew your designation or
move up to the next level. We also continue to incorporate
equity and respect in everything we do, thereby ensuring
our continued alignment with the Government of Alberta's
Fair Registration Practices Act. In addition, we have recently
completed an update to the P.Tech. stamp, and everyone
seems pleased with the result. We hope you will concur.
Finally, for C.E.T. applicants needing to verify their educational credentials, we continue to add to our list of disciplinespecific certification exams. This process is of particular
value to the growing number of internationally-educated
professionals who see in ASET an opportunity to launch
their Canadian careers. This is a costly, time-consuming
undertaking, but it is one we are committed to completing
in the interests of fairness. We aim to offer the most comprehensive, relevant and robust certification possible.
I look forward to meeting many of you in the time to come.
In the meantime, I truly feel privileged to work for you and
hope you will connect with me should you have questions
or concerns.
