As one of EFC’s many standing committees, being part of the Quebec Region Executive Committee is an opportunity to share insights and expertise, specific to the region, and to help grow the engagement within the province by planning various activities and events.

We would also like to thank two incredible long-standing members who have stepped down from the committee to take on new roles in other committees and to allow other members to bring new ideas and energy to the region. We are truly grateful to Patrick Marion of Desdowd and Cara Backman of Franklin Empire who have volunteered and dedicated significant time, resources, and energy, over many years, to offer programs and networking opportunities to the Quebec region EFC members – all of which had a direct positive impact on our electrical community. They are both passionate about the electrical industry and this was apparent as they performed their role with dedication and tenacity.

Thank you to Patrick and Cara for serving on the committee, and for their contributions and implication. Finally, we look forward to working more closely with Lisa and Vanessa to offer new and innovative programs and events to our members.
