An Open Letter From The Chapter Vice Chair - Brenda Madley
Welcome back and we hope you had a great summer! Our Chapter year runs from September to June, and we are excited about this year’s activities.
Many of us Edmonton Chapter members - over 80! - will be at the CSSE Professional Development Conference next week, and we have some great networking and engagement ideas for the Edmonton Chapter. Watch our Facebook page and twitter feed to see what we’re going to be up to!
Our meetings and events team were busy this summer laying out plans for 2016/2017. Our M&E team strives to provide one professional development opportunity and one CSSEYEG Connect (networking) opportunity per month. Check out our upcoming events. We have some great lunch n learns and connect events like Red Piano and Oil Kings game at Rogers Place planned. Our next lunch n learn is September 27, don’t delay in registering so we can see you there!
Our CRSP study group started last week with 16 members hoping to successfully write their CRSP exam. A special thank you to the ACSA who generously offered their classroom space for our members to study in.
A special congratulations is in order to our Chapter member Trevor Johnson, who was elected as the Vice President/Treasurer in the last election. Trevor will be inducted next week at the PDC and will take on the role of President in 2018. Congratulations Trevor on being elected and we are excited about the CSSE under your leadership.
We are also so excited that our Chapter Past-Chair Raeleigne Van Patten earned an “Outstanding Service Award.” The award is earned by CSSE members whose careers have been distinguished by a sustained commitment to excellence in Occupational Health and Safety. Winners of this award must demonstrate their commitment to their profession and to the CSSE at the chapter, regional and/or national levels. Raeleigne has been part of the Edmonton Chapter for many years and we are thrilled to be able to recognize her in this way.
On behalf of the Edmonton Chapter Executive and Board of Directors, we are looking forward to a great year, and we can’t wait to see you at our events.
