Last night was the first board meeting of the 2012/2013 school year. I was honoured to be acclaimed EPSB Vice-Chair by my colleagues.
As Vice-Chair, when our new Board Chair, Trustee Sarah Hoffman, is unavailable for board business, it is my job to step forward and support the district. Trustee Heather Mackenzie will replace me as chair of the Conference Committee, a position I held for the last two years.
I will also be serving the district through work with the Alberta School Boards’ Association and the Public School Boards Association of Alberta. I will also be serving on our Advocacy and Audit Committees.
It is interesting to note that the three chairs are under 35 years old. I just turned 28, Conference Chair Mackenzie is turning 30, and Chair Hoffman is 32.
There is much on the agenda, and I look forward to the year ahead.
