Member of the Board
Roy Christensen has almost 40 years’ experience with the oil and gas industry as pressure welder, NDE technician, and inspector in the welding, mechanical, coating, and civil disciplines.
Upon obtaining an honours diploma in Welding Engineering Technology from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in 1990, Roy worked as a supplier quality surveillance (SQS) coordinator with engineering and procurement (EP) companies. As a Registered Engineering Technologist (RET), he has been a member of the Association of Science & Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET) for almost 30 years and holds several professional certifications and qualifications.
In 2018 Roy founded the KT Project to save organizations significant money and time, by providing key resources to leverage expert knowledge transfer for successful project execution. He has authored over 40 published works that can be found on various media forums and industry publications.
Roy’s activities in fundraising, recruitment, program development and delivery, writing, and executive roles have benefitted dozens of professional and not-for-profit organizations, among which are the Association of Science & Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET), Business Network International (BNI), Contract Chief Inspector Association (CCIA), the Danish Canadian Club (DCC), McKnight Hockey Association, Persian Language Center of Calgary (PLCC), Rosebud Fellowship, SAIT Alumni Association, SAIT Welding Engineering Advisory Committee, Youth Singers of Calgary, and others.
As one of the first two students to graduate from the Rosebud School of the Arts high school, Roy has maintained close ties to RSA through the years. Both he and his parents have donated resources and volunteer hours in support of RSA and it's ventures.
Roy is grateful for the opportunity to join the Rosebud Fellowship as a board member and help develop it into a significant legacy-building charity. Today the world needs charity, perhaps more than ever, with both benevolence and generosity towards others – our family, friends, and neighbours, around the world and across the street.
