Two Candidates for Councillor At-Large: Maryse Doucet, P.Eng., FEC, MBA and Katie Steeves, P.Eng.
Maryse Doucet, P.Eng., FEC, MBA
It’s with great pride and enthusiasm that I offer to serve again as Moncton Councillor. Over the years, I have had the privilege to hold various positions at the local Branch level (Secretary, Communications, Vice-President and President) from 2005 to 2009, as well as Moncton Councillor at the provincial level representing the Moncton District from 2009 to 2015, and again from 2018 to 2019. Serving on the Moncton Branch and provincial Councils has enabled me to have an excellent understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing our professions. Specifically, the changes in technology, as well as ever-evolving laws, will continue to make lasting changes to our professions and how we execute self-regulation. Thus, self-regulation has never been more important. I want to continue to work to ensure that our professions grow and prosper while evolving to ensure all professional engineers and geoscientists carry out the responsibilities and duties that we have undertaken in our professions.
I do look forward to contributing to our Association’s ongoing progress while continuing to instill the core values that made the Association what it is today. Protecting the public interest, promoting the Association and professions, as well as engaging youth in the engineers and geoscientists careers, are in my opinion amongst the key items we need to focus on.
My academic background in industrial engineering and business, as well as my professional work experience in the field of transportation, have really allowed me to build a solid foundation over the last 16 years. Combined with my active participation on the Board of Directors of a local homeless shelter (House of Nazareth) since 2012, I believe I’m well equipped to be a resourceful asset to Council.
