Having studied Civil Engineering at the Universidad Central de Marta Abrau University, Cuba and returning to Jamaica, I needed exposure to the local construction sector and also networking, and the JIE was just the right place for this.
Since then, I have been an active member of the JIE for over 15 fulfilling years and I have also served on the JIE Council for 3 years.
With the JIE, I have been exposed to several aspects of the Engineer fraternity which has given me a more rounded perspective of what engineering is and what it entails. I have had the opportunity to visit and participate in many training events and met some amazing Engineers.
Mrs. Dionne Sampson-Russell, JP, PE, MBA, BSc, MJIE
“Since becoming a member of JIE in 2014, my professional growth, exposure and development has increased exponentially. I have had more opportunities to learn, grow and impact a wider network of professionals in a structured way. It has since been a symbiotic relationship; as a consequence, I would like to encourage all engineers and engineering students to get on board.
Whatever your professional pursuit, there is always an institution or organization that is affiliated with your profession whether locally, overseas or both. No one can experience real growth and sustain that growth without meaningful engagement with professional institutions throughout their career. Jamaica’s growth and the region is also dependent on strengthening the institutions that now exist by increased volunteerism and active participation of its members in supporting the vision.”
Mr. Junior Bennett, P.E., CMfgE, CMfgT, M.Sc. B.Ed, MJIE, MSME
