My time at CKISS has come to an end. As such, I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to the CKISS community, membership, Board, staff and contractors for allowing me the opportunity to lead this amazing organization.
I have had the pleasure and honour of working at CKISS for over 9.5 years. In that time, CKISS has grown into an exceptional organization, with a fantastic team. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you, to all of the amazing people that make this organization the success that it is.
Firstly thank you to the Board. Your leadership and guidance have been key to the success and growth that CKISS has experienced over the years. A special thank you to our longest standing Directors, Laurie Carr - Past President, Tom Bradley – Current President, Terry Anderson – Treasurer and Allan Freeborn – Director, your energy and dedication has been inspiring.
I am most proud of the CKISS staff team. The collaboration, camaraderie and passion of this group is difficult to match. CKISS is very lucky to have, Laurie Carr – Acting Interim Executive Director, Khaylish Fraser – Aquatic Invasive Species Program Coordinator, Erin Bates – Operations Program Coordinator and Laurie Frankcom – Education Program Coordinator, continue the important work of the organization.
The confidence and support of our stakeholders and funders has been imperative to the success of CKISS. I would like to say thank you to each of you for supporting invasive species management and education in the Basin. Your support is greatly appreciated.
