Member Services Officer
In 2013, the almost 1200 members of ASPA committed to hiring a full time Member Services Officer (MSO) to assist the Executive, in particular the President, in addressing Member matters, complaints and questions. This is the primary function of the MSO, who also monitors and addresses all matters tied to the Collective Agreement, and contributes to the day to day functioning of ASPA.
Darcy Hryn – Bird started as ASPA’s first MSO on June 10, 2013. Darcy comes to ASPA with a long history of labour relations having worked in both management and the Union. Her educational background is that of a Registered Nurse. Her labour relations skills were honed with the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses and the Saskatoon Health Region. She has Labour Relations Certificates from Queen’s University and the University of Saskatchewan, and an Information and Protection of Privacy Certificate from the University of Alberta.
