ASET Spring 2020 - 24

FOR PRESIDENT

Ray Wilkinson, C.E.T.

Ray Wilkinson is a native Albertan. He's spent much of his
life and career in Western Canada and the Canadian Arctic.
Ray collected trades tickets like baseball cards. He earned
his steamfitter/pipefitter, plumber and gasfitter tickets
through the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).
He then graduated from NAIT as a building construction engineering technologist in 1988.
Ray inherited his curiosity in nature and science from his
father, a carpenter and later entomology technician for the
Canadian Forest Service.
"I always loved building things," Ray says, "but I learned that
I could design and plan the construction better than I could
build it. All those drawings, plans, documents and specifications made sense."
Ray's been an independent contractor since graduation,
operating Wilkinson Western Project Management, Ltd.,
for over 32 years. There, he specializes in piping, pressure piping and pipelines through construction project
management, supervision and quality assurance services.

He was encouraged early on by
engineers and other technologists to
pursue the ASET certification. He has
proudly held the C.E.T. designation since
1992, noting that "I have experienced
many occasions when my C.E.T. added
value to my professional findings,
observations or reports."

ASET staff took note of Ray's merit when he was a member of the Board of Examiners. They suggested he run for
Council. His interest was piqued so he threw his hat into the
Council elections. He doesn't regret it one bit.
"It is a rewarding feeling to be able to participate with the
other Council members in the continued growth and development of our professional organization," Ray says. In
his time as a Councillor (and his current position as First
Vice President) Ray has seen firsthand the commitment it
takes to keep an organization like ASET on track. That said,
there is much left to be accomplished and he plans to stick
around for a while yet.
Ray says in addition to the standard responsibilities of the
President position, he wants to accomplish even more.
Among his plans, Ray would like to help develop both the
next five year plan for the association, and a more robust
and fair CEO evaluation tool for the executive committee.
Ray would also implement annual governance training for
ASET Councillors and committees representing Council.
Additionally he'd set up more meetings with ASET technicians and technologists across the province. In line with the
association's recent efforts, Ray ultimately believes in "promoting wherever I can the right to a scope of practice for
ASET's technicians and technologists."
"It looks like I will have a busy year ahead," Ray says.
