Dear Policy Insights Friends, Supporters and Partners,
As the new executive director of Policy Insights Forum (PIF), I believe we are only as strong as the company we keep. After a few years with this organization, I am confident that we are surrounded by the best people dedicated to facilitating meaningful public discourse on strategic horizon issues of importance to Canada and the world.
I recognize the importance and the responsibilities of leading a non-partisan policy organizer focused on being an engagement convenor, a place where people can exchange ideas freely. I remain committed to tackling issues of importance to national security, including policy literacy, civic engagement and advancing national interests, one policy at a time
. My goal is to build upon the incredible work and momentum of the PIF while looking toward the future with growth in mind.
We are also committed to efficiently using our resources to achieve impactful public policy and decision-making through independent research, analysis, and engagement. We aspire to revive a sense of civic duty and engage with people that want to leave Canada and the world a better place.
Fortunately, we have the right people on our side. We have an enthusiastic, knowledgeable Board of Directors, a committed team of employees, senior fellows, and policy associates with decades of experience, and a community of emerging leaders, volunteers and donors who are steadfast in their support.
I thank you for choosing to make a difference in projecting and transmitting Canadian values and commitments to the next generation of policy leaders. You are a crucial friend to the PIF, and I want you to know that my door is always open.
In the coming months, I plan to engage with our stakeholders to understand where we are as an organization and where we need to be. Each of you has a unique perspective on critical issues and how we can advocate for policy changes that can propel Canada forward. I'm eager to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org
