TORONTO — The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) has announced that board member Mark Frayne has assumed the position of president and chair as of May 8 at its annual general meeting.
Frayne has contributed his time to numerous professional organizations including Women in Science and Engineering, Professional Engineers Ontario Sudbury Chapter, the Municipal Engineering Association on its Awards and Recognitions Committee and the Professional Advisory Committee for Project Management at Cambrian College.
In a statement Frayne said engineers are well positioned to shape the role of society. During the next year he will be overseeing the development of the organization’s new strategic plan, to be released in the spring of 2022.
“As president of OSPE, I hope to apply my understanding of what individual engineers in Ontario need – no matter where you live or what industry you work in. I believe that all engineers should become members, because OSPE provides a forum where a single voice can be joined with others to make it a shout for the changes needed to make our communities a better place for everyone,” Frayne said in a statement.
“OSPE is very pleased to announce Mark as its new president, particularly because he represents our profession from outside of the Toronto area,” said Rejeanne Aimey, outgoing OSPE president and chair. “Our engineering community is diverse, and Mark demonstrates that OSPE is committed to engaging the best people based on merit, regardless of race, gender, or geographic location.”
