WTTE Chapters

At last year’s WTTE symposium on October 4, 2018, Katherine Britton, Chapter Coordinator and Angela Vacchino, Chapter Chair of Thunder Bay, proudly announced the launch of WTTE Chapters. Since our company services and operates over a large geographic area, regularly connecting with colleagues and fellow WTTE members can be difficult. WTTE Chapters will be stationed in numerous locations across the province so members and supporters can regularly meet to tackle occurring issues and to continue to have important conversations. The WTTE Executive Committee understands that each Chapter will have its own needs and limitations to address. The Chapter Chair has the flexibility for each location to be tailored to its specific needs to best serve the interests of that area.

Currently there are chapters established in Barrie, Pickering and Thunder Bay. With the launch announcement at the symposium, the following locations have expressed interest:

  • Markham

  • Bruce

  • Kitchener/London

  • Minden

  • Hamilton/Niagara

  • Hydro One Telecom.
