Our Board

AASRA is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that agree to sign on for a two year term. Meetings are held bi-monthly at various locations across the province (including over Skype).

 

Our Annual General Meeting, Trade Fair and Conference is held at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum (www.ashfm.ca) in Red Deer every March, where AASRA AGM participants are granted free access to the Museum and Hall of Fame on that day.  All members are encouraged to attend and bring a guest who may be interested in joining the association. The AGM is a great time to meet new members, and learn about what's happening in the association. If you are interested in volunteering for AASRA or possibly pursuing a board position, please contact us at info@aasra.ab.ca.

SHARON PEREIRA: Treasurer

In 2012 Terry Shwetz was introduced to AASRA at a Peer Support Group meeting at the Glenrose Hospital after losing his left leg at the knee in a motorcycle accident. Terry says he found a great deal of emotional support and information by interacting with a great group of people who were thriving while managing the type of challenges he was facing for the first time as an amputee.  AASRA played a very positive role in the final stages of his recovery and continues to do so to this day. Terry retired in 2009 after a successful 30 year career with Telus and went on to work for Ledcor and several other organizations. Terry and his wife Eva enjoy traveling and have made their way to various destinations like Australia, Peru, Europe and many North American locations. Terry is an active golfer and enjoys hiking, camping and even a bit of pickle ball.  Terry and Eva have two grown daughters and live in Edmonton.
