Darrel Danyluk, P.Eng., Wins CCPE President-Elect Seat

Darrel Danyluk, P.Eng., a past president of both APEGGA and the Consulting Engineers of Alberta, is next in line to lead the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers. Mr. Danyluk became president-elect during the CCPE Annual General Meeting in Calgary, April 23.

Gordon Sterling, P.Eng., of Toronto assumed the office of president, with Hollis Cole, P.Eng., of New Brunswick completing his term and becoming past-president.

Mr. Danyluk was APEGGA president in 1999-2000 and first vice-president in 1998-1999. A board member of the Consulting Engineers of Alberta since 1988, he was president of the CEA in 1991. He was a director of the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada from 1994 to 1997, and in 1994 chaired a steering committee called From Potential to Prosperity, which addressed human resources needs of the engineering profession.

Mr. Danyluk was elected a fellow of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering last year, in recognition of his contributions to engineering.

The Calgary resident recently retired as chief operating officer of Reid Crowther and Partners, where he was responsible for all corporate operations. Reid Crowther is a 700-person, multi-disciplinary consulting engineering company with offices in Canada and abroad.

Mr. Danyluk started with Reid Crowther after graduating in 1972 from the University of Manitoba with a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering. He worked his way up through a series of management positions, including branch manager in Red Deer, manager of the municipal department in Edmonton, regional manager and vice-president in Edmonton, and several other vice-presidencies, before becoming COO in 1997.

Currently he's executive director of the Calgary Centre for Innovative Technology, with the University of Calgary Faculty of Engineering. Mr. Danyluk is responsible for administration, management and marketing of the CCIT.

"I am honoured to serve the profession on the CCPE board on behalf of APEGGA, and I take the responsibility seriously," said Mr. Danyluk. "I am a strong believer in the strength of the engineering profession and the contribution made by our members to the health, safety and economy of our society - and of the importance of engineering licensure in that equation.

"I will strive to ensure CCPE upholds our traditions of quality and excellence, and works closely with all constituent associations to ensure the public is safeguarded."

Established in 1936, CCPE delivers national programs to help ensure high standards of engineering education, professional qualifications and ethical conduct. It's the national voice of APEGGA and 11 other constituent members, the provincial and territorial associations/ordre that regulate engineering in Canada and license more than 160,000 professional engineers.
