CIPS Manitoba

About Michael: 

What is your Background?

I have a degree from the University of Manitoba - BSc. Computer Science and a Project Management certificate from the University of Toronto. I currently hold designations for Certified Agile Project Manager, and Information Systems Professional. I am currently working on completing my Project Management Professional designation, currently in the applicant phase.
I have always been into computers and IT, programming was something I enjoyed and could build a career around. My first and only job is with a great company in Winnipeg, Pollard Banknote right out of University. I've been with the company 8+ years and I began in one department and moved to my current department after a few years with the company. I currently get to work on digital solutions the company provides to clients involving web and mobile applications. During school and for a while after on the side I performed contract work for small & medium sized business' in Winnipeg and surrounding area.
In my spare time I volunteer and work on various projects. I also have my hands full managing our investment properties with my wife and taking care of our 2 year old son.

What type of Involvement have you had with CIPS?

I joined at the national level about a year or two ago and began working on a new CIPS website as a hobby project and later joined my local chapter in Winnipeg, Manitoba. During that time I've obtained my ISP designation and I am actively working with both national and local levels of CIPS.


What value has your involvement with CIPS provided?

CIPS has provided me with professional development and I have been able to obtain my ISP designation.  I've also had the opportunity to network and work with some great individuals in the industry locally and nationally.
