”I have been involved with the LACF as a juror on the Annual Grants Committee and then as Chair of the Annual Grants Committee and Board Member. The 10-plus years of reviewing and managing the adjudication process has given me insight into the innovative works and research that others are doing in and for the profession. There are always interesting ideas that push the boundaries of the profession and I learn about areas of the profession that are different from my area of practice. The Foundation assists in keeping the profession fresh while assisting with compiling and relating our history as a profession in Canada. What better volunteer activity than one that stretches your mind?”
