I will be attending this event. I hope to see you there. Please circulate to anyone interested.
Dear Trustee Sue Huff:
I am extending an invitation to you to attend a Wine and Cheese Mixer that ARTES (Association for Responsive Trusteeship in Edmonton Schools) is organizing for people interested in local education issues, including potential candidates who are eyeing the possibility of running in the fall election.
Saturday, May 15th, 7-9 p.m.
Woodcroft Community League Hall
13915 - 115th Avenue
The focus will be on building connections, but the event will also include three brief presentations:
- Dale Hudjik, ARTES president, on the principles of effective and responsive governance;
- Lynn Odynski, a former EPSB trustee, on the responsibilities of the office; and
- Ken Chapman, partner at Cambridge Strategies, on the values that voters identify as most important heading into the vote.
Anyone considering standing for election as a trustee is invited to attend, along with members of the public who want to learn more the school board system or get to know potential candidates.
Please forward this invitation to others that may be interested. In particular, please send it to anyone who may be considering their candidacy for school trustee in Edmonton.
President ARTES (Assoc. for Responsive Trusteeship in Edmonton Schools)
