Volunteers are the FACE of the Hamilton-Burlington Chapter PEO

The FACE of the Chapter

FACE

In 2015 the Board created an image of a FACE of the Chapter that we could use as a reference for our activities and volunteering commitments.

We hope this will be useful to all Chapter members and volunteers.

Maslow outlined a hierarchy of needs whereby people are motivated to reach the highest level called self-actualization.  We chose this at the ‘hat’ we wear to become motivated.

Why
As a P. Eng.; as an individual; as a company, group, industry, organization – what is your motivation to be a part of the Chapter?  What hat are you wearing?

Who & Where
Who and in which circumstances bring common and special talents and time?
Physical – mental, local – global, individual – group.

What
What are the ‘outcomes’ when Why, Who & Where are working together?  We have opportunities to impact lives, achieve goals, add value, help others, do the ‘right’ thing, make things better, and, make difference.

Purpose
Our reasons for doing things should pass the ‘sniff test’.  We should be accountable.
We need to understand the Why, Who, Where and What, before we establish our directions and goals.

 

How
There are parameters on how we move forward – such as laws and regulations, ethics, by-laws, mandates, budgets, structures and restrictions.

We will achieve Chapter goals through effective relationships with members and our community: utilizing – resources, knowledge, skills, experience, connections, creativity, methods and time.

PEO’s Core Values

PEO’s core values are intended to inform the behaviour of its members, staff, and volunteer leaders in their everyday activities and interactions.

Accountability
PEO protects the public interest by being accountable to the public, such that PEO staff and volunteers accept responsibility for their actions and decisions, and deliver what they promise to deliver, and PEO as an organization honours its legislated and financial obligations. Staff and volunteer performance will be appraised based on meeting objectives within desired timeframes.

Respect
PEO demonstrates respect for its staff, volunteers, applicants, licence holders, and external stakeholders through fair practices and timely, informative communications. In turn, PEO expects that its regulatory obligations and activities in serving and protecting the public interest are respected by its stakeholders.

Integrity
PEO demonstrates alignment between the Professional Engineers Act and its processes and practices, including consistency of its policies and their application to maintain integrity of the licence, and will adhere firmly and impartially to its legislated requirements in pursuit of regulatory excellence.

Professionalism
PEO operates in a professional manner with its applicants, licence holders and external stakeholders, by demonstrating competence, impartiality and reliability.

Teamwork
PEO achieves its goals through effective teamwork and collaborative partnerships both within the organization, between its staff and volunteers, and with other bodies involved in the practice of professional engineering.
