Morley Selver, Director of Certification

The award was unanimously approved by the attendees of the annual general meeting held in Toronto on 30 March 2014. Specifically, the award recognizes the extensive volunteer work contributed by Morley in his role as Director of Certification. In 2013, he single-handedly reorganized our certification systems documentation, created new forms, and updated our policies and processes to be compliant with the recommendations from the IPMA Certification Validation Management Board during our latest certification system validation. In addition, he has taken on the role of arranging and facilitating our Certification Board meetings, as well as the general PMAC Board meetings. Morley has actively followed up on certification and training inquiries from our current and potential members, and has demonstrated considerable leadership. PMAC has benefited greatly from his contributions and the 2013 PMAC Volunteer of the Year Award is just one small way of thanking him for his service to our community.

There’s Nothing To Project Management.

There’s Nothing To Project Management. You Can Do It In Your Spare Time. Right now, in the oil and gas field there is a huge demand for project managers and a very limited supply.
