Who are you and what do you do?

 

I’m Tricia Meaud and I am a Program Officer with the Growing Forward 2 Secretariat.  I work on the Innovation and Transformation programs.  I help people navigate the process to receive funding for innovative projects for researchers, food and agri-product processors.

How long have you been a MAHE member?

I have been a MAHE member since 2013, and on the board as Director of Member Relations since 2014.  Prior to that, I was a member of the Alberta Human Ecology and Home Economics Association (AHEA) since 2002.

What do you enjoy most about being a MAHE member?

What I enjoy most about being a MAHE member is the chance to meet and network with other Professionals.  I really enjoy learning about what other people do and having a peer group who share a similar approach but work in a variety of industries.

 

What piece of advice could you offer to new PHEc’s or IPHE’s?

I would encourage new PHEc’s or IPHE’s to get involved in the organization.  Attend events and volunteer on committees or as a member of the board.  We love the enthusiasm and ideas of new members and you never know when a connection can help with a career change, or new way of looking at a problem you may be facing.  I’ve really enjoyed the leadership opportunities I’ve had from being a member of the board – the skills I’ve learned on governance have been useful in both my career and with other volunteer group’s I have been a part of.
