Chair: Jim Boswell and Louise Lorence - email Jim and Louise
Mandate: The main focus of the Professional Development Committee is to ensure all members have the opportunity to expand their networks and knowledge through Professional Development Sessions.
The Sessions will be developed with an inclusive focus ensuring all participants benefit from every session. Each session will strive to have an educational component for both Private and Municipal Emergency Managers.
The location of each Session will depend on the subject matter while offering a variety of locations to ensure members have equal opportunities to travel and showcase their communities.
The subject matter of the sessions is decided through the interests and requests of the membership. By providing feedback to the Professional Development Chair, ideas for each Professional Development Session will be customized to the interests of the membership.
The ultimate goal is to use the Professional Development Sessions to evolve this Association as a true Ontario-wide organization for all private and municipal emergency managers.
