administration and accounting/finance. He will also oversee the CIPH Membership Committee, Canadian Association of Pump Manufactures
(CAPM), and assist with marketing and communication initiatives.

provide more strategically oriented leadership for the benefit of members and the industry in terms of meeting with members along with provincial
and federal governments. Michael’s background and skill set will serve him well in providing leadership and in working with CIPH volunteers, members and partners,” states Ralph.
