Annual Conference and AGM 2019

The NBKA annual conference was held in Fredericton, on October 5th, 2019

This conference was a great event during which we welcomed, Serge Bourdeau, the FKQ President, Travis Saunders, the KPEI President and Professor of kinesiology at UPEI and Vicky Bouffard-Levasseur, professor in kin at UdeM. Marki Wong, President of KANS has also joined us for the occasion. This conference was a great opportunity to discuss the profession of kinesiology in New Brunswick, with comments and observations from viewpoints in neighboring provinces. Specifically, it was an eye-opening realisation to see what KIN PEI are doing to advance the recognition of the profession of kinesiology in the community, the health system and throughout the government. This is something that the members agreed we need to replicate in our own pursuit of greater recognition here in NB. The FKQ detailed concrete barriers and obstacles to avoid in our practices as we advance our profession that we were not aware of previously. These tangilble takeaways are going to change how we operate our association going forward.

During our AGM, Kendra Cooling was unanimously re-elected for a two-year term as the NBKA president. Furthermore, Antoine Côté was elected as the Vice-President and Jérémie Arseneau elected as the new treasurer for 2019-2021.
