Announcement from Edmonton Chairs

Dear EHL Members,

It is with mixed emotions that we announce that our 2-year term as Co-chairs for the Emerging Health Leaders Edmonton Node is coming to an end.  We have both been involved with the EHL Edmonton Executive for the past four years and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Executive during that time.  We have had the opportunity to meet many of our members at events and have learned tremendous lessons in leadership that only a volunteer role can deliver.  Here are a few of the lessons that we learned during our term:

  • When leading volunteers, it’s important to remember that they don’t have to be there…so always be appreciative, thankful and, above else, be kind. Remember that, just like you, they’ve worked a full, challenging day.
  • When leading volunteers, it’s important to remember that they don’t have to be there…so always be appreciative, thankful and, above else, be kind. Remember that, just like you, they’ve worked a full, challenging day.
  • Share the responsibility. Volunteers are volunteering, in part, to gain experience and skills. Give them the chance to learn, grow and lead.
  • Learn from your volunteers…collectively the team has a ton of knowledge and expertise.

We are pleased to announce that we are handing over the role of chairs to three very well qualified individuals who currently hold positions on the Executive: Kim Poong (currently Membership Coordinator), Nicole Whitaker (currently Communications Coordinator) and Meilai Ha (currently Project Manager).

Kim, Nicole and Meilai will be sending information to EHL Edmonton members soon to request expressions of interest, as there will be new Executive roles that need to be filled for the upcoming year.

We hope that you can make it to our final event for 2015-16 on June 14th and meet the new Tri-Chairs.  Details will be coming to your inbox very soon.

Wishing you all the best,

Alisha Thaver and Karmin Hovde
