The Quebec Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (AFG) has announced the appointment of Isabelle Jodoin, senior vice president, Quebec, with Stantec, as Chair of the Board of Directors, the first woman appointed to this position since the Association was founded in 1974.

The announcement was made following the AFG general meeting on June 13.

Jodoin will carry on AFG’s mission of ensuring the development, prosperity, and visibility of Quebec’s consulting engineering field.
