A Message from the President

It is my absolute privilege and honour to be elected as President of the NSNWA. I am looking forward to representing the NSNWA and working with the chapters and other executive team members to advance NSNWA’s mandate.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing President, Annie Bernard-Daisley. The present success of NSWNA would not have been possible without her leadership and for all her contributions and the hard work that she put in over the years.

I hope you are as enthusiastic as I am to see what kind of changes all of us can make together in 2022 and beyond!

Bernadette Marshall
