    Membership Spotlight

    Cindy Wallace, CAE | Association of Alberta Registry Agents

    I am the member engagement specialist with the Association of Alberta Registry Agents. My role consists of meeting regularly with our 200 member registry agents in the province of Alberta, planning our events and managing our communications. I continually look for new benefits and partnerships for our members, and my goal is to help their business be successful. I am the staff lead on multiple committees, such as the communications and events committee, the Alberta health review committee and the governance committee. In my spare time, I volunteer for Meeting Professionals International – Greater Edmonton Chapter as their president-elect, which I really enjoy. In 2020, I earned my CAE® designation after a very rewarding program. Much collaborating was done as well as meeting other students and connecting on different projects. I look forward to connecting in person in Halifax this fall with many of you. Connect with me on LinkedIn.
