Personal Statement

My name is Darren Hardy, and I am running for re-election to the APEGA Council. Over the past four years volunteering on Council, I have helped to develop the recent strategic plan and as Chair of the Audit Committee, worked to develop a new business planning process.  I’ve also been an active member of the Governance Committee. I’ve really enjoyed my experience with Council and would like to continue to build on the work I’ve done so far.

I have 30 years of experience as an engineer in Alberta in the energy sector with technical and leadership roles that have given me the opportunity to gain valuable governance and strategic planning experience, which are important assets to bring to APEGA Council.

I feel that building strong teams by focusing on mentoring and development, dealing with people in an honest and ethical way, and helping develop clearly defined goals is the best way for everyone to succeed.  These are the values I have brought to Council and consider core to all activities.
