About Me

For most of our members I am not new, I have been actively involved in the NEDAAAB activities since the day I joined this professional Association.

The NED Alumni Association of Alberta (NEDAAAB) was founded in year 2006, and I am proud of being one of the founding members of NEDAAAB. This association has grown and now include over 300 alumni members living all over the Alberta. Each year, approximately 30 to 35 new Nedians join our Alumni family. Although it’s not a very huge number but still this number shows that we are expanding.

I have the deepest respect for my seniors, and would never, ever, make a decision that would harm who we are who we will be. However at the same time I would say, we certainly need a new injection of fresh faces, people who can grow this Association as it should. We need the enthusiasm of youth and the wisdom of the experienced. I believe I hold and honor both of these qualities.

It is a time for you to make a change. Make your vote count and I won’t let you down.
