Making a Difference
015: one water, three very different organizations. oWWa, oMWa,
oWWea with three different points of view with one thing in common,
working together to make this industry the best it can be. there was lots
of passion in putting together this "one Water" themed issue of Ontario
Pipeline magazine! i have immense admiration for our committee members who
want to make sure that the articles are the best they can be. as we continuously
stress in each issue, we are asked to get involved, to participate, to stay current
and to make a difference.
i encourage you to participate in our industry events throughout the year and
make a difference. look outside the box and go to an event you have never participated in before. i don't know about you, but the older i get, the more i realize
how much more there is to learn and how much we can learn from one another.
Volunteering is rewarding in itself but being part of the water community is what
it really is all about.
i attended the Young Professionals Fall Meet and greet and can't begin to say
how refreshing it was to listen to their stories. it was touching to meet so many of
them who want to make a difference. i encourage all of you to come out to these
events and help support our young Professionals. Participating in their events
allows them to feel like they are part of our water community. they are our future
and need our guidance and leadership.
For 2016, please help make a difference by becoming a volunteer, participate
in events, come to our annual conference in Windsor and if you can, join us for
golf and fundraising for a great cause, Water for People.
We are not like any other industry. our employers understand that our association is run by volunteers. they allow us to dedicate our time, which is often on
their dime. they help us to make a difference. in closing, i wish to give thanks in
particular to my employer runnalls industries and to all our members' employers.
We want them to know that without them, we would not be able to accomplish
what we have and continue going forward to bigger and better things had we
not had their support.
i look forward to seeing more of our members volunteering and participating
in 2016. Happy Holidays and Happy new year!
