July CIPS Volunteer of the Month: Trent Lowes I.S.P.

July 2016 CIPS Volunteer of the Month:

Trent Lowes I.S.P.

Director, Chair, Discipline Committee, CIPS Saskatchewan

About Trent: 

What is your Background?

I have been with my current company, SaskTel, for over 33 Years.  I started out as an Apprentice Lineman, but quickly moved into Information Technology when the need arose.   As with most long tenured IT Professionals, I have held many roles; Network Operator, Programmer, Analyst, Architect, Manager, and now Director of Solutions Development.   Outside of work I enjoy sports, nature and travel, combining all three of these on a couple of trips when myself, wife and 2 older children all volunteered and worked at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, then later cycled across the Netherlands.   

 

What type of Involvement have you had with CIPS?

The IT  profession really picked up steam through the late 80's and 90's.  As CIPS Saskatchewan was established it became a goal to get involved and support the profession.  I have been a member and now more recently(2015) I became a Board Member of CIPS Saskatchewan and chairperson of the Discipline Committee.  

 

What value has your involvement with CIPS provided?

CIPS has provided me some great networking opportunities and allowed me to stay abreast of the IT industry in general.  With Saskatchewan being a relatively small IT community, interacting with other IT professionals and students keeps me on top of skills and resources that can benefit my work as well as me personally.  Having my I.S.P is important to me personally.  Understanding what it took to get an I.S.P made it a goal to achieve, and gives me a better understanding of the value I.S.P's can bring to individuals and organizations.
