As the date to the Green Party of Alberta AGM draws near, I am reflecting on all of the exciting work the GPA has done over the last year. I am also proud and eager to share my contributions to the party.
My first event that I helped facilitate was the 2016 Pride Parade. Having a lot of fun supporting members of the LGBT community, I was eager to dive into engaging with the public on behalf of the party.
Seeing that there was a lot more work with engaging the public, I pursued and won, a position on the Green Party of Alberta executing council.
I would later go on to work IT, events and organizational work. I also succeeded in bringing lots of new members to our party as well as modest media attention. Because I believe that we need to engage with our whole province and push out of Calgary, I often also found myself doing event work in Edmonton. I also formed the Calgary South-East Constituency Association, and was appointed by our leader, Janet Keeping to have a position on Shadow Cabinet
Over the months I held many socials where I saw that there was excitement for our membership to grow. I was very excited to give allegiance to what the party stood for.
In February, I spoke at the Alberta Student Leadership summit to students who were excelling and leading in their respective fields. I saw a lot of engaged students eager to join the cause.
