My name is Deanna Barten and I have held the position of Secretary-Treasurer for the past 2 years. Prior to that I was on the Audit Committee, a Trustee and for 7 years an EAP Co-ordinator for Finance. During that time I had the opportunity to attend the IAMAW William Wipinsinger Center for training, including Leadership 1, Financial Officer Training and EAP. Most recently, as a member of LL2603, Canadian Labour History Committee, I was fortunate to be able to attend the first Canadian Local Lodge History Project Training that was held to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the IAMAW.
