ASET Technology Alberta Spring 2024 - 30

FOR COUNCILLOR
Ryley Proznik
P.Tech.(Eng.)
RYLEY PROZNIK was raised on the prairies and has set
roots down in Edmonton for the past 15 years. He has three
children of his own and four stepchildren that he cares for
very much. Since becoming a technologist, he has worked
on major civil development projects across Canada from the
east coast to the edge of the Arctic and many places in between.
Like most ASET members, he works in the trenches of
the industry towards the unending pursuit of technical excellence
in his field.
Ryley is an outspoken professional with a passion for storytelling,
amateur building projects and outdoor adventure in
his free time. You'll often find him working the room, striking
up conversations and getting to know everyone in it. His approach
to problem solving relies heavily on connecting people
to create synergy and understanding. As a Councillor, he
will be committed to serving, representing, and advocating
for ASET members.
Believing in putting people first, Ryley emphasizes that
" when people come first, communities thrive. When we
create a community where individuals feel free to be themselves,
positive changes will occur. " It is his firm belief that
we can make this province a better place each day by virtue
of our individual contributions to our profession and a
little collaborative effort. " Together, with our skills we can
actively continue to create and enhance communities where
everyone can belong and have ample representation to suit
their needs. "
Ryley's 18-year career of civil construction and engineering
experience has involved direct training/mentorship of dozens
of technical individuals starting out their careers in the
industry. He is often turned to for guidance from seasoned
practitioners as well. Since 2021, Ryley has been a project
manager for Stantec Consulting. At Stantec, he has previously
served four years as a geotechnical technologist, followed
by six years as a lab/field supervisor.
" There are few things we cannot accomplish when our lines
of communication are pointed in the right direction, " he
says. In the professional sphere, he points out that one of
the biggest hurtles techs face every day in their respective
industries is a lack of clear legislation to define engineering
technologist roles. That legislation should exist in a way that
would prohibit non-professionals from misrepresenting the
work without the same level of accountability members are
committed to providing.
" Traditional professions don't typically face this kind of challenge
and our disciplines should be no different. Last year I
observed the Council operating diligently to remedy this and
I applaud the strides they've made so far. The issues they've
taken on resonate with me profoundly, and now that society
is so close to recognizing our true place, I want to be there to
do my part for when those walls finally come down. "
Ryley pledges that he will promote on all fronts the fact that
our members' work ensures that the public infrastructure our
communities are built on will be of better quality and safer
with our collective efforts coupled with the appropriate legislation,
because certified technologists are the ones who
should be trusted to carry out these roles. If elected, he plans
to lead, represent, support, and engage ASET members with
integrity and accountability. He will also work tirelessly to
collaborate with private, government and educational institutions
to get members the recognition they deserve.
