The Board of Trustees welcomed Alberta School Boards Association President Mary Martin to Palliser Central Office Tuesday.

Martin and trustees met in-camera to discuss local and provincial issues.

Palliser and all Alberta school boards are members of the ASBA, which offers a variety of support services including insurance, legal and governance support and advocacy.

Martin was first elected as a school board trustee in 2007 and served as chair of Calgary Catholic School District Board of Education from 2011-2014. She became president of ASBA earlier this year and this was her first visit to Palliser Central Office.
