Inside Education is governed by a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors representing a diversity of industry, government, education, community and conservation perspectives — valuable and necessary for quality bias-balanced education. Members share their expertise, leadership and enthusiasm with us by providing direction and guidance for the Society’s vision, mission and goals. Allow us to introduce them to you…
We are thrilled to introduce David as the new President & Chair of the Inside Education Board of Directors. People still talk about the presentations David gives for our Teacher Professional Development programs! Once, after noticing a bit of an energy lag prior to another indoor presentation on a sunny day, David gathered all the teachers and challenged them to look at multiple perspectives by changing their perspective with “let’s go outside!” We first met David through his work in wind energy, and his current role with AltaLink continues to provide us insight into an important Inside Education topic area of electricity.
Nadine is our longest serving Director and one of our Past Presidents – having served as president in the early 2000s. Her day-job is Executive Director of the Alberta Chamber of Resources, and when not spearheading that organization can be found hiking the mountains of the East Kootenays with Marvin the wonder dog!
Meet our newest addition to the Inside Education Board of Directors, Rob Harris. We have known Rob for many years through his role at Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, leading the environmental education team at that Department. In his daily life Rob and his family live on property that his family has farmed for four generations! As he says, this has helped sew the seeds from which his passion for the land, the environment and for education have grown. We are delighted to welcome Rob aBOARD (get it?)
