One of the programs that I’m most excited about working on through CIR is the Family Health Challenge – the FHC is a fantastic community engagement harm reduction program. Also contract negotiations impact every resident even if they do not realize it.
In my experience as a CIR member, I’ve learned that I am connected to thousands of other residents all over the country and that we all have similar trials and tribulations.
One of the ways in which I’d like to see us grow as a union is that we could be bolder – though this risks alienating some of the membership, it would give us a more visible profile.
In the coming year, I want to encourage more visibility of the leadership among the membership. Our membership needs to know about the programs that we offer and the work we do. The more invested the membership is the stronger we are in general.
