We will continue to expanding the representation of Kinesiologists on a national level by promoting and by providing advocacy for the profession of Kinesiology in Canada as our vision is to be recognized as the united voice for the profession of Kinesiology in Canada. With my experience of associations, I also will prioritize the development of services and activities for the member Provincial Kinesiology Associations and their members over the next year in conjunction with the new #KinVision2022 Strategic Plan.

Finally, on behalf of all our members, I wish to express our gratitude and thank all directors for their contributions and dedication.
