Ian Tait – Region 2 West – Regional Recording Secretary

My name is Ian Tait, and I am running for the 2 West Recording Secretary position. Thank you to my nominators- Candis Visser and Kevin Marriott, for this opportunity.

I am currently your APBC Communications Director and have many different responsibilities, including co-moderating our social media and developing and delivering many of our internal and external communications, including media and government releases, our strategic plan, and our monthly newsletter.

I have been involved in our union for many years- first as a Shop Steward and regional Recording Secretary and as an RVP in region 2 East for many years. I took the Communications Director position at that time, where I continue to assist and report to the Provincial Executive Committee, Board, and Provincial President. I am also a part of our Communications Team, where we plan and implement multiple releases and reports on behalf of our union, including content targeted at the public, news media and/or various levels of government.

I have recently taken a Unit Chief position in Vancouver post, and I have met many of you throughout the region, filling in as an OCUC or working on an ACP unit. I am running for this position to assist the already great team of RVPs that are in place in region 2 West, and I wish to take more of a supportive role in advocating and representing our members at this time. I believe this position is very important to all Vancouver members, and I believe my experience in many levels of this union makes me a great candidate for this position.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me, whether on the street or by email at ian.tait@apbc.ca. I appreciate your consideration.

In Solidarity,

Ian Tait            BA, ACP
