Consulting Engineers of Saskatchewan (CES) is pleased to announce that Jason Mewis, P. Eng., was elected 2013-2014 Chair of The Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - Canada (ACEC) at their Annual General Meeting in Lake Louise June 21, 2013. As Chair, Mewis becomes the public face of the association, representing nearly 500 independent consulting companies across Canada.
The Saskatchewan born and educated engineer has over 15 years of experience working on projects for the heavy industrial market in Saskatchewan and beyond, as both a Senior Structural Engineer and Project Manager.
In 2004 Mewis started ENGCOMP Engineering & Computing Professionals Inc. in Saskatoon. As his company grew, so did his active promotion of the Consulting Engineering industry and the contribution the profession makes to every aspect of society.
Mewis has been an active member and proponent of CES for the past seven years, serving on its Board of Directors and representing the Saskatchewan association at the national level as ACEC Liaison for the past five years. He will retain his ACEC liaison responsibilities on the CES Board.
New CES Chair, Jason Gasmo, P.Eng. acknowledges the contribution Mewis will make during this term as ACEC Chair.
"In my time with the CES board, Jason's level of commitment to the board, the association, and member firms has become very clear. He has great insight into the needs of the industry, and he will be a strong asset for ACEC Canada to have as Chair of their board. I look forward to continuing to work with Jason through his term as our ACEC Liaison, because I feel there is good opportunity for progress under Jason's focus and energy," said Gasmo.
Beverly MacLeod, CES Executive Director, addressed the significance of this election following Mewis's installation. "The Saskatchewan consulting industry has grown in parallel with the provincial economy. Throughout this growth period, Jason has been an advocate and a promoter of our provincial and national associations. It is fitting that his new role is an acknowledgement of his success in our growing economy. I know that he will continue to meet up-coming industry challenges as a true leader," said MacLeod.
