As part of this campaign, we all have an opportunity to make a positive change for our Union in the BC/Yukon Region. I would like to be part of that positive change. It is the main reason why I am running to be your next Regional Director.
As a first step, I would like to publicly state our commitment to the following values, as the Four Cornerstones of our campaign:
- Respect as the basis for our dealings with members, employees, colleagues, and employers. It means being sensitive and responsive to the rights of individuals.
- Integrity as a cornerstone of our organization. It means that the Institute and its members act with honesty and fairness based on sound moral and ethical principles.
- Co-operation as the foundation for meeting the challenges of the future. It means building partnerships and working together toward common goals.
- Accountability as our commitment to ensure that all of our values are respected. It means informing our members of our actions and being answerable to them for those actions.
These are the “…enduring values…” of our Union.
Words should be more than just clichés. This commitment is about “walking the talk” and reflecting the type of Region we want to be proud of at the end of the day.
I hope that I can count on your support.
