Ontario Pipeline - Spring 2015 - (Page 17)

FEATURE | bOARD ELECTION ACCLAMATION OF 2015-2018 OWWA DirectOrs Each year the Ontario Water Works Association (OWWA) seeks nominations for two new members to sit on the OWWA Board for a three year term. As we only received two applications this year by the deadline of November 5th, 2014, the candidates are automatically acclaimed (approved) to fill these positions and there will be no voting process. The new OWWA Directors for 2015-2018 are Ken Campbell and Nick Reid. kEn cAMPBELL, P.Eng. Ken Campbell is Vice President and Chairman of the Board at R.V. Anderson Associates Limited (RVA). He has acted as process engineer, project manager, project director, and quality assurance reviewer on a wide range of water supply projects throughout his 29 years with RVA, and has been an OWWA member for 25 years. Ken has seen a lot of changes over this time. OWWA has grown to be a recognized voice in the water industry and with the Ontario government. The quality of educational events has improved, with the annual conference and seminars providing members with high quality professional development and networking opportunities. Having personally gained so much over the years from his involvement with OWWA, Ken would like to "give back" to the organization. His goal would be to help OWWA continue providing leadership to the Ontario water works community through government and public engagement and excellence in OWWA member support and education. Ken has been a member of the OWWA Groundwater Committee since it started in 1995, a member or chair of the OWWA Source Water Protection Committee since it started in 2005, and was twice a member of a local arrangements committee for the annual conference. Ken has 13 years' experience as an elected director of RVA - a leading employee-owned consulting firm focused on water, wastewater, and municipal infrastructure. In addition, he is a member of the Institute of Corporate Directors, has acted a chair of a non-profit summer camp for children, and as a member of the Board of Managers and Elder at his church. Ken's water industry, OWWA, and board of directors experience gives him the background to make a positive contribution towards the future growth and development of the Ontario Water Works Associate, and its Board of Directors. nick REiD Nick Reid is Executive Director of Strategic Partnerships for the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) and has been with the Agency for 20 years. In his current role, he works collaboratively with a diverse network of stakeholders in organizations, municipalities, ministries and industry, seeking opportunities to execute long- term strategic initiatives fundamental to the growth of Ontario's water sector. Nick participated in several stakeholder consultations as Ontario developed the Water Opportunities Act and its Water Sector Strategy. He is an active member of the Ontario Environmental Industry Association and for the past two years has participated in their outreach to Ontario MPPs. From 2002 to 2006, Nick was General Manager of the Region of Peel's four main water and wastewater plants, ensuring continuous service to 1.2 million residents under OCWA's largest operating contract. Previous work at OCWA encompassed management of OCWA's IT Division, including support for Ontario's largest implementation of a wide area SCADA system for 700+ water and wastewater locations. Nick has been very active with OWWA, volunteering as Publications Chair of the Association's quarterly magazine Ontario Pipeline since June of 2009. In May of 2014, he took on the Chair role of AWWA's Manufacturers and Associates Council Subcommittee on the "Low Economic Value of Water" and presented findings at ACE in Boston. He is a member of OWWA's Climate Change Committee and sits on the Ontario Centre of Excellence's (OCE) External Project Advisory Panel. Nick is an active mentor with the Toronto Regional Immigrant Employment Council, helping professionals from other countries adjust to Ontario's business, government and social practices. Nick is a graduate of Trent university's Biology and Environmental Science Program and looks forward to bringing the perspective of OCWA's 160+ municipalities to the OWWA Board.
