Nov 23, 2016
At every National Conference and AGM that I have attended, including 2016 in Vancouver, a number of members have taken the time to come and say hello and to introduce themselves to me. I always try to do the same. These introductions are really good for me and the members I meet as it is always great to put a face to a name.
In many of my conversations with members they have told me that they had been dealing with various members of our staff for many years and they had never actually met them. They had spoken to staff on the phone or by email and dealt with them on various matters, but never had the opportunity to meet them. While we can’t always bring our staff to the national conference or to other gatherings of members, I felt it was important for you the members to meet our staff.
Here is the great crew that is pleased to work with you and assist you at the CPS-ECP National Office.

Today I introduce the entire National Office crew to you. Going forward, once each month, I will profile one of our staff members and the work that they do at the National Office. While these meetings are not in person, I hope that they will be a meaningful way for you to meet the great crew of staff we have at CPS-ECP.
Walter Kowalchuk – National Executive Director
