Lloyd Linkiewich, R.E.T., PMP

Lloyd Linkiewich was born in Edmonton and grew up in Vegreville before moving back to the city. Electronics has been his passion from his teenage years, taking electronics classes and working for an electrician in high school.

Lloyd graduated from NAIT. He took electronics engineering technology, with an option in telecommunications. After graduation, Lloyd landed a job with TELUS precursor ED TEL. In his 29 years with the company, he spent fifteen years in outside plant design before moving into project and senior program management.

Besides an illustrious career as a technologist, Lloyd turned his other passion for photography into an award-winning business with his wife, for 17 years.

He’s worked for a few different telecom companies since, including his current employer, Alberta Broadband Networks. Lloyd’s roles have varied from project management to vice-president of operations, with his current role being construction director.

While holding these positions, Lloyd received ASET certification as a C.E.T. and R.E.T. He eventually became a professional licensee in engineering (P.L. (Eng.)) with APEGA. He also has a project management professional (PMP) certification. While at TELUS, Lloyd began giving back to his profession when he started as an auditor with the R.E.T. joint registration board.

Since he started volunteering, Lloyd hasn’t stopped. At ASET, he was chair for the inaugural P.Tech. and practice review boards. He currently sits as vice-chair of the practice review board, secretary for the ASET Education and Scholarship Foundation, auditor with Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC), and has been a board director with Spinal Cord Injury Society for over 30 years.

With a rich history of both membership and volunteerism with ASET, Lloyd wants to be re-elected as a ASET Councillor. For over 40 years, he’s fostered an aptitude for leadership. He would use these skills to benefit the profession and the association’s membership. Never one to back down from a challenge, Lloyd is outspoken on contentious issues. He’s also a stickler for the right solution, and always takes the time to find the right answer through rigorous research.

Lloyd’s specific goal if elected will be to work with council, the provincial government and industry leaders across Alberta to continue to grow the membership and to focus on the inclusion of ASET in the Professional Governance Act.

“Technologists play a crucial role in modern society by leveraging technology to address various challenges and shape the future. We are problem solvers, innovators and ethical practitioners that make a significant contribution to the industries and residents of this province,” Lloyd emphasizes.

Engagement is the key, and this is what Lloyd aims to do as an active and vocal member of Council.

“We, as the ASET team, must get behind the drive to bolster the talented individuals that we have in this province to become the Canadian leaders in technological advancements,” he says.

Lloyd has been married to his wife Tracy for 40 years. They have two beautiful daughters and a new son-in-law. The couple continues their passion for photography, camping and their love of Siamese cats. Lloyd’s new hobby is RC buggies, and he tries to get as much driving time in as he can.
