CAA Focused, Community Driven
CAA Saskatchewan’s new chair on the value of community spirit
Hello, valued CAA Saskatchewan Members! I’m so delighted to serve as your chair of the CAA Saskatchewan Board of Directors for the next two years.
Though I started serving on the board in 2013, my history with CAA stretches back to 2003, when I joined the auto club. I immediately realized the value of my membership. As residents of Swift Current, my husband Wes and I love cheering on our beloved Broncos and 57s. We also share a passion for travelling, camping and the Roughriders. On all our journeys, we have trusted CAA for roadside assistance, insurance and travel bookings.
In 2012, I retired from my day job, ending a 36-year career in the credit union system, though I still own a small marketing and communications business. Retirement has proven rewarding in so many ways. As a true believer in giving back to my community, I serve as a Swift Current city councillor and a board member for both the Swift Current Broncos and Tourism Swift Current. I also volunteered for this year’s Western Canada Summer Games, which took place in Swift Current in August.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the pleasure of working on several boards and committees including: the Saskatchewan, Canadian and Swift Current Chambers of Commerce; the SaskTel Board of Directors; and Swift Current Agricultural and Exhibition Association. And, of course, CAA Saskatchewan, for whom I served as vice-chair from 2017 until earlier this year.
I would like to thank our employees and tow truck operators, who do their best to ensure that Members like you are well taken care of. I take pride in the advocacy and safety work CAA has completed in the areas of road safety and air passenger rights.
Most of all, I’d like to thank you for your valued membership. If you ever have any questions, comments or suggestions about your membership or CAA Saskatchewan Magazine, please reach out to us anytime at email@example.com.
