When my involvement in the APT Division of Vansco was at its peak, I almost always went to the local Power Engineering Society meetings, which were held during lunch hour at a local hotel. When the chair of the local chapter stepped down, Tom Molinski of Manitoba Hydro, Dave Fedirchuk of APT (seconded from Manitoba Hydro), and I, got together to discuss how to ensure the chapter’s continued success. We decided that I would become chair, and they would assist in finding meeting topics and presenters. This worked very well. Later, other members stepped forward to assist as well. I was chair of PES for 4 years.
