Fort Saskatchewan resident Allan Wesley was elected Fort Air Partnership’s (FAP) new Chair at its AGM on May 8. He replaces Keith Purves, who stepped down from the position but remains as Vice-chair.
Wesley is a Decision Sciences instructor at Grant MacEwan University who holds degrees in Finance, Actuarial Science and Economics. A Fort Saskatchewan resident, Allan joined the FAP Board in 2015 as a public member because he was interested in the process of collecting air quality data and communicating that data to the public in a meaningful way.
“Fort Air Partnership plays a very important role regionally and provincial because we produce the data that so many people and organizations rely on for programming, to do planning and policy development, to conduct research, and to scientifically understand the quality of the air we breathe,” said Wesley.
Allan has found his work with FAP has re-energized his passion for teaching about the application of measurement and data in the real world. He welcomes the opportunity and challenge of becoming Board Chair, noting FAP has a very strong Board and great staff support.
At the AGM, Mike Fedunec was elected Secretary-Treasurer. Fedunec is an Environment, Health and Safety Manager at Agrium and a Northeast Capital Industrial Association industry representative. Confirmed as new Board members were Fort Saskatchewan resident Martin Mudryk as a public member, and Greg Norum as a returning public board member.
The FAP Board of Director is composed of eight public, four government and three industry members. See a complete listing with biographies of all Board members.
