    Jacqueline Biollo | Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Associations (ACTLA)

    I  was motivated to join CSAE because, as an executive director, the opportunity to share struggles, setbacks and successes with C-suite colleagues is a welcome addition to my passion for life-long learning. Over the course of my career, I have developed skills in government/public relations, strategic management and Board governance. The exposure to researching, developing, implementing and evaluating strategic goals and objectives has given me a firm foundation to envision and articulate sustainable outcomes—key skills required in my role. I hope to further put to use my experience and expertise in leading organizations and individuals now, and in the future. Connect with Jacqueline on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/s0ngbird
