New Chinook Editor Required

It is with regret that I announce I will be resigning from the role of Editor on June 30th, 2018.

I volunteered for this role October 2015 at my very first AFHS General Meeting. Yes, it was a bold move, but I’m not disappointed I did it. The saying that you receive more than you give has certainly been true for me. I have met some wonderful people who are passionate about family history. The role of editor has allowed me to learn about topics and people that I would never have come across in my day-to-day life.

Although I will no longer be editing, I will still design and layout Chinook. This means the new editor will be able to focus entirely on the job of editing.

I won’t say this position will not take some time and effort, but I can say, it will be worth it. I don’t often quote Margaret Thacher, but her words ring true for me:

“Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end.

It’s not a day when you lounged around doing nothing.

It’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.”

If you feel like making a bold move that will enhance your life and lives of AFHS members, please email me at editor-chinook@afhs.ab.ca
