Kyle Gee, P.Tech.(Eng.), PMP, GSC
Kyle Gee wears many hats and carries many licenses. He’s a professional technologist with an engineering license (P.Tech. (Eng.)), a project management professional (PMP), and is gold seal certified by the Canadian Construction Association.
With 20 years of experience in engineering, planning, procurement and construction, Kyle’s work has covered projects around planning, land development, utility and transportation infrastructure.
Kyle’s work has taken him all across Canada. He’s managed road construction projects in Whitehorse, Yukon, underground drainage installations in Fort St. John, B.C., road replacements across Alberta and dozens of others. Along with project management, he’s also performed contract specification writing and asset management work.
His experience in the heavy civil industry stretches back to 2000, and he’d like to bring the two decades of experience he’s accumulated over to a Councillor position with ASET.
“Over the past 20 years, my career has allowed me to work as a contractor, municipal owner and engineering and technology consultant,” Kyle says. “My national experience with engineering and technology professionals has given me a great deal of insight into why ASET is strong.”
To Kyle, much of this strength comes from the opportunities the association provides for promoting professional development.
“My experience has taught me that professional development and continuing education truly define outstanding professionals,” Kyle says. “By taking professional development to the next level within our membership, we will be promoting all of ASET’s strategic priorities while developing some of the most exceptional technology professionals in Canada.”
Professional development means a number of things to Kyle. To start, he holds that the association should help new members to improve their employability. The association can also build up members’ longevity in their workplaces by preparing them for future technological disruption. Kyle knows there is a large pool of knowledge waiting to be plumbed and shared from retired members, as well.
ASET doesn’t have to work alone to provide members with career development growth, either. Kyle points to working alongside like-minded organizations as another avenue for both improving and diversifying professional development.
With all of these tactics, Kyle believes that members can find benefit in certification, both on a practical level and a communal one. More professional development avenues mean higher employability and job security for ASET’s members.
With these tools in hand, Kyle wants to help the association develop even more, “as a national leader in technology by showcasing ASET members as highly skilled and practically educated professionals who are second to none.”
