Emilee Kaupp currently serves as first vice-president on the Council. She has a number of goals for her term as ASET president. To begin, she aims to increase the number of registered engineering technologists, to better reflect how much of the workforce that technology professionals encompass.

“With an increase to registered members, ASET can then assume an increase in respect by government and other professional bodies and be recognized and trusted by employers,” Emilee says.

“Addressing this challenge will require several approaches to increase public awareness of ASET and the value proposition for members and employers alike. First ASET volunteers could participate in high schools, sharing the multiple career paths that can be taken for certified engineering technologists,” she says.

“The association can also be more active promoting the benefits of a membership to college students. Technology Accreditation Canada and colleges could be approached to include Professional Practice Exam preparation in the diploma curriculum, to raise student awareness of ASET.”

Emilee would also encourage employers in the field to make ASET certification an employment requirement. This would support registered members, and help employers only bring the most qualified people on board.

Finally, Emilee would like to expand ASET’s public relations branch.

“ASET could initiate a public relations campaign to increase exposure and public awareness of the value technologists provide,” she says. “The campaign can include promotion on social media platforms, [and] consistently contacting current members with new information and facts in regard to the association and the membership.”

She will continue to bring a young female perspective to ASET Council. With this outlook she brings inclusion as it relates to both gender and generation. Being located in Lethbridge, Emilee brings Southern Alberta experience from the consulting industry as well as the education sector. She is very outgoing and enjoys meeting and interacting with people. She is very excited to move forward with ASET Council hosting in-person events again.

Emilee enrolled into the civil engineering technology diploma program at Lethbridge College in the fall of 2012. After completing her first year, she landed a summer job with Associated Engineering Alberta Ltd. in Lethbridge. There she gained ample experience to carry her through her second year of college.

After graduating in 2014, Emilee got a full-time job with Associated Engineering in Lethbridge. Since then, Emilee has gained experience in project management, design and construction on a variety of project phases. Her construction experience has given her a practical understanding of the implementation of design concepts. Emilee has been a registered C.E.T. since 2017. She has been involved in numerous land development and municipal projects in and around Lethbridge.

Emilee is a hard worker with a natural proficiency towards leadership. She volunteers on the CANstruction Lethbridge board. CANstruction is an event that showcases the city’s design and construction talent, with an added benefit of feeding hungry families. Emilee also leads the Associated Engineering Lethbridge Young Professionals group to promote business development to employees with less than ten years of experience.
