*Alissa is a candidate for General Director
I would love to get the members’ support through re-election to continue my contribution to ALIA. In 2021-2022 the Board was focused on immediate priorities, from a risk management focus during the pandemic, then through a change of CEO. We also had a strong listening and learning focus through the research and consultation phase of the Professional Pathways project, and through our President’s theme of inclusion. I believe I can help ALIA to lean into the opportunities for growth and innovation that will come over the next term.
I know the Board’s role, and I’ve sharpened my Board skills over the past two years as a Director. I’m committed to executing the director’s duties to a high standard, including financial monitoring and strategic planning. ALIA has a highly capable team of staff led by an excellent CEO. The Board helps the organization steer a path that reflects the aspirations of members, and of our service beneficiaries. Sometimes that means analysis and problem exploration, and sometimes it means endorsing bold steps into new territory, as it’s critical that ALIA does not stand still.
