I wanted to send my first official message as the newly elected President of the CIPHI NS PEI Branch. For those of you unaware, I have been a practicing Public Health Officer since 2009. As of recent, I have changed roles in the Public Health realm, now focusing on Emergency Preparedness as a Program Officer. My goal is to engage members and promote membership while playing an active role representing the Branch. This is also a reminder to members that have yet to renew for the 2019 membership year, so I encourage you to renew. If you are having problems with MSC, please let the office know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now on to a few updates from the last month within the Branch.
The 2018 AGM was held in at the Glengarry Best Western in Truro, NS, December 13. The Branch received nominations for elections for various positions. We have confirmed that Councilor Jeremy Young and Secretary David MacDonald were not re-offering. The Branch wishes to sincerely thank Jeremy and David for their contributions to our organization during their time on the Branch Executive. Congratulations to the following new elected members in their new roles:
President- Vanessa Nickelo
President Elect- remains vacant
Secretary- Laurie Pike
Northern Councilor- Samantha Robichaud
Central Councilor- (re-offering) Heidi Darling
The Branch also wishes to thank Sara Baird for her active role and dedication as Branch President over the past few years; your contribution has not gone unnoticed by the Branch or National Executive Council. I hope I can live up to your expectations!
