election
FOR COUNCILLOR
Senia McPherson
C.E.T.
SENIA MCPHERSON brings over 30 years of experience
ranging from laboratory testing to operations management.
As a NAIT chemical technology graduate, she has been a
C.E.T. member of ASET for over 26 years.
Senia started working as a chemical technologist with
Acuren Group Inc., where she developed special expertise
in materials testing, including the chemical and physical
properties of metal. Throughout her 23-year career at
Acuren, she served as laboratory analyst, quality assurance
assistant, business development associate and department
supervisor for the materials testing division. For the past 10
years, she has managed the compositional laboratory with
Bureau Veritas, which provides analytical data of natural
gas, hydrocarbon liquids, carbon isotopes and simulated
distillation in one of the largest gas chromatography laboratories
in North America.
Senia recognizes the value of giving time to various organizations.
For over 11 years, her family has provided food hampers
and gifts through a charitable organization. To advance
her professional development, she has recently joined the
Gas Processors Association Analysis Committee. She has
also dedicated four years to the Canadian School of Hydrocarbon
Measurement as both an instructor and moderator at
the annual events held in both Calgary and Grande Prairie.
As an active volunteer with ASET for the last three years,
she takes pride in being a spokesperson for the association.
Senia has given over thirty presentations to post-secondary
students enrolled at NAIT, SAIT, Red Deer Polytechnic and
Lethbridge College. ASET uses her presentation as a reference
training tool for incoming volunteers.
She has also represented ASET at the chemical engineering
technology advisory committee. She has assisted in vetting
the ASET volunteer portal and was recently appointed to the
association's investigative committee. For her dedication,
Senia received the 2023 ASET Volunteer of the Year Award.
Senia, along with other industry representatives, provides
strategic direction for services and programming, having attended
program advisory committees for polytechnic programs
with NAIT. As an oil and gas representative, she has
consulted at the advisory committee for the chemical technology
instructional program, providing input and guidance
on the needs of industry for three sessions.
If elected, Senia will target enrolment numbers and spread
the word about the true meaning of a professional technologist.
To Senia, it is important to recognize technologists as
professionals because their work touches on every aspect
of our daily lives. To address challenges of low enrolment but
growing demand for graduates with professional engineering
skills, and continual changes in process, technology and
equipment, it is essential to keep updated on current technology,
Senia emphasizes. This is where highlighting the ASET
Continuing Professional Development program can help.
" As Councillor, I intend to continue bringing awareness and
understanding to the public of what membership means,
the benefits of being a professional in one's technology and
advocating for professional recognition. Students enrolled
in engineering technology programs represent the future of
our profession and I understand the influence and magnitude
of mentorship, having been mentored by industry renowned
experts, " Senia says.
" As a Council member, I will increase public awareness of
ASET to encourage and grow membership enrolment. In
presenting to the vast range of technology groups, it thrills
me to see more women in various industries. Enrolment of
women is historically lower in technology programs. I will
endeavour to motivate young women to enroll in technology
and to engage with ASET. "
In Senia's spare time, you can find her exploring the beauty
and vastness of hiking trails in Alberta and British Columbia,
and capturing images with digital photography.
