September CIPS Volunteer of the Month: Trevor McDonald I.S.P., ITCP

September 2016 CIPS Volunteer of the Month:

Trevor McDonald I.S.P., ITCP

Treasurer, CIPS Saskatchewan  

About Trevor: 

What is your Background?

I began my career in IT after graduating from the University of Regina with a Computer Science degree in 1996. The majority of my career has been with SaskTel. I have been very fortunate in having the opportunity to work through a number of progressive IT roles including Programmer Analyst, Systems Analyst, and several IT Manager and IT Director positions. I am currently SaskTel’s Director of IT Operations with accountability for data centre, managed, cloud and business services support.   

 

What type of Involvement have you had with CIPS?

I joined CIPS and received my I.S.P in 2005.  After working for several years as an IT practitioner I felt it was time to give back to CIPS and the IT community. In 2015 I joined the CIPS Saskatchewan Board of Directors, and am currently serving as Treasurer.  

 

What value has your involvement with CIPS provided?

After graduating from University my goal was to become an IT professional. CIPS has given me the opportunity to achieve that goal through the I.S.P. designation. In working towards meeting the I.S.P requirements, I have become a stronger IT resource and asset to my company and IT community. Through CIPS I am able to play an active role within the local and National IT community, be informed of IT trends, and keep connected to IT leaders and practitioners within the organization.
