The Develop and Grow Joint Steering Committee met on January 25, 2021 and are pleased to welcome our newest board member, LPN, Dakota Drouillard.  

We marked the first meeting with a land acknowledgement and pipe ceremony, recognizing the unique place of honour First Nations traditions and culture have in our Alberta heritage. An indigenous elder also offered a blessing for our group and its work going forward.  

The major focus of the meeting was working through an exercise to help define a new association name. At our next meeting later in February, a name for the new Alberta nursing association will be chosen, along with selecting a President for the inaugural board.
