How Many PDUs is That Worth?

by admin - September 16, 2010 | No Comments

As Director of Programs I am frequently asked that question and I’m not surprised. Our recent Membership Survey showed us that the subject of professional development and maintenance of certifications are important subjects to our members. On top of that, our past events often varied in their PDU value or, in some cases, may have been undervalued. Which inevitably brought us back to the question, “How many PDUs is that worth?” Read more »

Views from the Past President

by admin - September 16, 2010 | No Comments

I originally joined the chapter in mid-2007 and was acclaimed as Treasurer in 2008 and elected as Vice President in 2009. The normal flow of becoming President in January 2010 was altered when the board decided to change our operating year to start on July 1 instead of January 1. This would have seen me become President on July 1, 2010. However then-President Scott Hutchinson stepped down in May 2010 when he moved to the interior of BC. This moved me into the role as President two months early with the intent of staying on until July of 2011. But not to be outdone by Scott moving within BC, my wife and I decided to move back East, splitting our time between Florida, where there is actually sun and warmth during the winter, and spending the summer in the lake district of Ontario closer to our families. This resulted in my stepping down after only two months as President and Janice Christenson taking on the role. Read more »
