October CIPS Volunteer of the Month: Eric George, I.S.P.

October 2013 CIPS Volunteer of the Month:

Eric George, I.S.P.

Director, CIPS British Columbia

About Eric: 

What is your Background?

My background is living in British Columbia. As I mature, I realize that it is the favored approach to make full opportunity of the time during the day, with the appropriate balance of productivity and entertainment, and getting a good nights sleep. My education is a BTech in Computer Systems from BCIT, and currently enrolled in a MSc in Information Systems at Athabasca University. I currently work at another not-for-profit association as a Programmer Analyst. I also enjoy tennis, running, volleyball, and golf. Lastly, I also realize that you should always grow and move forward in your career ambitions. Those ambitions should be giant and much bigger than what you are currently at. So breakthrough your challenges so that at the end, and even during, you can be at peace knowing that you are fulfilling your dreams one step at a time. It is not too late. Do not be discouraged along the way but keep your vision in front of you. 


What type of Involvement have you had with CIPS?

My involvement with CIPS started when I received my ISP designation in 2012. Since then I gratefully found myself as a Director on the BC Board in 2013.


What value has your involvement with CIPS provided?

Being a CIPS Director has provided me with the experience of how a Board of Directors conducts business and particularly membership concerns. This experience I would not have in my current paying job. Also a greater satisfaction to promote professionalism in the ICT community in Canada. And an increased awareness of the issues our members and non-members have in the workplace.
