FOR COUNCILLOR
Rob L'Heureux
C.E.T.
ROB L'HEUREUX has always been attracted to building
things and knowing how they work, from watching the graders
as a child, to building things as a teen. The drive was always
there. When Rob left high school, he sought out an education
robust enough to guarantee himself a strong stable
career in a field of his interest. Civil engineering fit the bill.
The problem solving and unique projects Rob gets to work
on are the things he enjoys most about being an engineering
technologist. He thrives as well on the fulfilment of knowing
that the work he does makes a difference for others and the
greater community.
From Rob's experience, engineering technologists are the
backbone of the infrastructure industry. He is proud to work
with some of the most skilled, adaptable doers one could
hope to meet. Between managing projects, designing solutions,
planning long-term objectives and implementing solutions,
it's an engineering technologist doing it.
On the value of ASET membership, Rob has noticed that
ASET brings power in numbers through representation,
much like a union. " ASET ensures that our educations and
abilities are respected every day. They also ensure that we
can work to the fullest of our abilities though partnerships
with the governing bodies and associations. For me, The
work they have done with the P.Tech. accreditation really
shores up a technologist's ability to reach peak potential
and career growth, " Rob says.
This value can be increased through continued lobbying
for the skills and abilities of technologists in the workplace,
according to Rob. Doing so will ensure the technologist is
renowned as the gold standard and put their membership
to work for them.
Rob says one of the biggest issues facing Albertan technologists
today revolves around cost cutting. " The cost savings
drive in industry seems to be putting much more expectations
and work loads on the techs to work harder at a higher
level for less. I have also heard the phrase 'Just a tech' too
many times. Techs are way more valuable than some can
comprehend, " he says.
If elected as a Councillor, Rob will " put forward ideas to
work with Alberta employers to help educate and influence
them, ensure that they know why they want a tech to
fill that role in their organization, and explain why they are
worth the expense. "
He'll begin his strategy by examining those of the past to see
which plan has had the most impact.
" I would need to know what ASET has done in the past and
the net results to develop plans. I would love to make changes
for a positive impact in a way that would build an environment
where new technologists would never hear the phrase
'You're just a tech' ever again, " he says.
The restoration and modification of vintage cars is Rob's
favourite pastime. Aside from the fulfilment of working with
your hands and seeing a physical manifestation of your
accomplishments, It has greatly expanded his knowledge
and built many lifelong friendships along the way.
