FOR COUNCILLOR

John Truong
C.E.T.

John Truong received his diploma in electrical engineering
technology from NAIT and currently works as an application
specialist at Siemens. As well as being a C.E.T. with ASET,
he's a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE).

the events, training programs, technical seminars, getting
involved as a volunteer and more. "

An advocate of hands-on, inquiry-based learning, John also
uses his strong interpersonal skills to help find solutions to
objectives. His friendly personality makes him approachable and easy to talk to, which helps with both networking
and developing stronger, longer-lasting relationships.

" I personally have utilized the mentor and mentee program
on two separate occasions, and they worked out well, " he
says. While the current unavailability of in-person meeting
opportunities presents a challenge, John has some ideas to
foster more networking capability.

John hopes to put these skills to good use as a member of
the ASET Council. On how he'd like to strengthen the association, his main goal would be to make as clear as possible
all of the benefits that membership offers.

" Ideally meeting in person would be the best scenario, but
with our current pandemic situation it is very difficult to
meet people in person. Therefore communication is very
important via video conferencing, voice chat or even messaging, " he says.

" People I know have told me before that the cost has always
been a factor in maintaining their ASET certification. Some
have told me that their membership doesn't help with their
career, and I beg to differ, " John says.
" How to get the most out of the ASET membership for new
and current members, and how to ensure members want to
stay with ASET " is where John would like to start.
" One of the things I would want to achieve is to find a better
and easier way to explain the benefits available for ASET
members, " he says.
" There are many benefits available but not all are very forthcoming when you don't look for them. The most important
ones are the most obvious ones that most overlook. "
Of advantages that potential members might not see, John
points to " the opportunity for technologists to expand their
networking circle and meet some incredible people. This
can be done by taking the opportunity to attend some of

Something else John believes should get more limelight is
ASET's mentorship program.

" It would great to have some online social events where we
can have groups of people, to socialize and network with the
Council or other members. This could possibly lead to some
good brainstorming for some new innovating and development of ideas. "
John has a passion for trying new foods and travelling the
world. He always has amazing stories and experiences to
share with everyone he meets. His eye for details helps him
to coordinate social events, such as badminton matches,
game nights and other group outings.
