"I see this as an important role and an opportunity for myself to contribute positively to the chemical engineering profession in Canada," said Bassi.

As president, Bassi will work closely with the society's local sections, student chapters, subject divisions, industry professionals and academics.

One of the important tasks being undertaken by the CSChE is the development of national process safety management standards for the chemical engineering sector. Bassi hopes to continue working on this initiative during the coming year.
