2017 Winner

Congratulations to the 2017 Volunteer of the Year!

Paul Dufresne, CMRP

Paul has been an SMRP member for eight years. As Chair of the Best Practices Committee, he was instrumental in the launch of the SMRP Best Practices, 5th Edition compendium in April 2017. Perhaps some of the most important member benefits (as shown in the 2016 SMRP Member Survey), SMRP’s metrics and compendium provide standardization and benchmarks to measure the success of maintenance and reliability programs.

As Chair of the Best Practices Committee, Paul was responsible for leading the review and revision process of all 69 SMRP metrics, seven guidelines and the new glossary featuring more than 250 definitions. He led a committee of roughly 15 volunteers over the past two years to complete a new version of the document, which to date, has had more than 900 downloads.
