This was an opportunity for the President, Mr. Dimitri Tsingakis to review the activities of the past year and the present the preliminary plan for 2024.

During his report, he highlighted the various activities that were held, including webinars on modeling and dust-related risks. He also listed CRAIM’s various collaborations with the Ministry of Public Security (MSP). Members were also able to get a glimpse of the events for the coming year. He mentioned that he wished to consolidate the partnership with other partner associations, as was announced with the signature of this agreement on May 2022 between ASCQ, RECO, AQSICQ and CRAIM (Info).

“Despite the economic situation which affects the whole of society, I am very optimistic for the future of our organization. The work to raise community awareness and the benefits of maintaining our efforts in risk management must continue. If we want to maintain the level of security. » underlined the president, Mr. Tsingakis.

During this meeting, certain outgoing members of the board of directors chose not to renew their tenure, wishing to take some free time for themselves. They are Mr. Pierre Drolet, secretary-treasurer of CRAIM and retired from Air Liquide, Mr. Luc Piché, Prudent and Mr. Yves Dubeau. The latter has been active within CRAIM since 1996. He has held various positions on the board of directors, including president, vice-president and administrator. We sincerely thank these three pillars of CRAIM, who have allowed our Association to distinguish itself in the field of major technological risk management.

In return, we welcome with great pleasure four new administrators, namely Ms. Rupa Desai, process and risk management engineer at Tetra Tech QE, Ms. Marion Bizouarn, founder and process safety consultant at SOA Formation et Accompagnement, Mr. Daniel Oligny, president of Prudent and Mr. Raymond Desbordes, general manager – Somavrac Group.

This change within the council will certainly influence the orientations and actions of CRAIM so that they better reflect the needs and aspirations of today.
