I hope this message finds you and yours well and in good health
The executive volunteers have been working hard over the last year during this trying time to accommodate the education of the Building Operators and do it in a way that keeps us all safe. We Have been active in getting guest speakers that are willing to do webinars that they haven’t done before because they believe it is important too. There have been great talks and unique topics that have been delivered to you. We have as well recorded them and placed them on our website to be viewed at your leisure. I want to say thanks to Mark Arton who has been instrumental in acquiring interesting speakers and then hosting the meetings too. Carrissa Spreager in providing the ZOOM invitations to the membership to link them to the meetings. Monika Bhandari for putting the magazine out with the links to the meeting and the BIO out for the readers to preview and connect. The next speakers will be interesting to managers at all levels. Enmax will speak on how it is preparing the local distribution grid for the future, as well as catastrophic events such as the power outages which recently occurred in southern US. The Building Operators Association has been working with the Alberta Chief Power Engineers Conference Committee (ACPECC) The committee has a mandate in that they put on an annual conference focusing on safety for the Chief Power Engineers that manage not only plants but to include facilities as well. Because of the pandemic they had to cancel the 2020 conference but are looking to put on a virtual one this fall. There will be guest speakers and will include ABSA as keynote speakers. We will keep our membership abreast of the status of the Seminars and the guest speakers. The topics will range from some in depth system safety systems and protocols to management topics as pertains to Chief Engineers. We continue to move forward to establishing competencies for Building Operators. It is becoming a big task but lessened with the right people behind it. We are always looking for volunteers to the association. Elections for the executive are coming soon. We are so looking forward to Building Operators to help out. We will post the positions to the association in the next magazine. I hope you would consider a position, we need you and your ideas. So, take care of yourself and please be kind to one another. With kind regards,
