  • A Message from the National President

    A Message from the National President

    2009 has been a busy and productive year of change for VRA Canada: at the end of September we closed the National office, bid a fond farewell to our Executive Director Kathy Regan, and hired Events & Management to help us better improve service to our members. We are certain that the new year will be a memorable one filled with prosperity, growth, and success for all our members. We would like to thank you all for your patience and support as we underwent this transition.

    2010 also promises to be unforgettable for another reason: it is our 40th anniversary! This upcoming year will mark 40 outstanding years of being a leading organization and strong, credible voice for a wide variety of

    vocational rehabilitation professionals. We are enormously proud that for 40 years we have had outstanding, superior members who provide an unparalleled collective of specialized knowledge and services. We have great hopes that our 40th anniversary year will be a milestone for VRA Canada, and with your help and support we know we can make it our most memorable and superior year yet.

    Here at VRA, we are constantly striving to better ourselves and those we serve. This means staying current by attending and completing courses, staying up-to-date on current best practices, and learning through our peers. This also includes attending conferences such as the one we held in Markham this past October. The turnout was fantastic, the speakers were educational and insightful, and the round-table discussion was enlightening. Stay tuned for the next edition of Rehab Matters, where details for next year’s conference (date and location) will be announced.

    With the importance of professional development and continuing education on our minds, this fall’s issue of Rehab Matters appropriately shines a spotlight on education, learning, and the significance of growth within the rehabilitation field. We have an abundance of interesting and informative articles in store for you in this issue, and we hope that you not only enjoy this edition but also take some valuable information away with you.

    Just a quick reminder: membership renewal time is now upon us! Membership is open to anyone working in the field of rehabilitation and to those who are interested in furthering the cause of the association. Fees are $325 for a professional and $275 for an associate. The deadline is December 31, and more information can be found on our website at www.vracanada.com

    We would like to hear from you! Letters to the editor, comments, questions, suggestions and ideas for upcoming issues can be emailed to [email protected]

  • British Columbia Society

    BC Society has had a busy fall in terms of professional development. In October we offered a workshop on solution- focused interviewing for return to work planning to our members in the Okanogan region of the province. The presenter was Nancy McConkey, MSW, a leading Canadian authority on the solution-focused approach. The next workshop will be in November in the lower mainland area. Dr. Sue Johnson, an assistant professor at the University of Northern BC will be presenting on ethical dilemmas and ethical distress in the workplace. The BC Society’s board of directors is pleased to welcome our two new board members: Lorna Goodwin and Geri Smith. The board’s focus over the next few months will be on budget preparation and strategic planning to guide the society over the next couple of years. We also are putting the final touches on our marketing plan that will include activities aimed at membership recruitment and retention and increasing the profile of the association in the province. .
