Right after his posting to  5e Régiment de Génie de Combat in July 2014, Capt Natynczyk took on the challenge of creating the future CMEA chapter for the area. Starting from scratch, he rallied the members of the Regiment to maximize recruitment for the Association. Of particular note, he developed a constitution that was inclusive of all military engineers in the entire Quebec City region. The new CMEA Chapter, le Chapitre de Québec was the result.
