ADRIA again held its Annual AGM in a hybrid fashion on June 16th, with reception gatherings in Edmonton & Calgary, and online opportunities to participate for members elsewhere in the province. The evening featured a keynote presentation from Queens Bench Justice Anna Loparco, who outlined important Court Initiatives regarding Restorative Justice.

Central to the AGM proceeding were the election and appointment of Board Directors and Officers. Their bios are detailed on our Board webpage. Two new Board members were added, and ADRIA members will be well represented for the 2022/23 year as follows:
Barbara McNeil, C.Med, Q.Arb
Samuel H. Sele, Q.Med
Cindy Imppola, Q.Med
Dora Dang, C.Med, C.Arb, C.Med-Arb
Director & Governance Committee Chair
Paul Blakeney, C.Med
Amin Poonja, Q.Med
Sharon Roberts, Q.Arb
The position of Vice President is to be determined.
Three Board members left the Board in June, having completed their terms or relocated out of province: Barrie Marshall, Kevin Kelly and Ali Ansell. Each had contributed significantly to the success of ADRIA over many years, and each will be missed as the Board convenes for 2022/23. We owe them a great deal of thanks.
