My name is Michael LaBerge and I am asking for your vote on October 16 & 17 at the United Conservative Party 2020 Virtual AGM to represent you as your Director in Calgary.
After receiving my Bachelor of Science degree from Dalhousie University in 1977, I moved to Calgary to begin my career in the oil and gas industry. I have been affiliated with private, national and multinational companies in technical, managerial and executive capacities, including Exploration Manager, VP Exploration, President and Partner in start-up ventures. I presently own a management and consulting company in a diversified energy industry.
Glenmore neighborhoods have been my home for 30 years where I served on two association boards. My wife and I now live in Cedarbrae where I have recurrently served on my condominium board. We have 4 independent adult children.
Politically, I have served on the Calgary-Glenmore Constituency Association Board since 1997, first with the PCAA and currently with the UCP where I am the VP Policy. I have volunteered on every provincial candidacy and election campaign since 1997.
In 2020, I organized the UCP CA Collaborative Governance Workshop (CACG) engaging 30+ CAs from across Alberta to draft the missing documents within the UCP governance portfolio. The result of their grassroots engagement is seen at this 2020 AGM with 4 governance documents and 12 governance resolutions presented for Members’ approval consideration.
I bring a diversity of political, community and business experience to the Board with necessary skills for critical analysis, project management and decision making.
My commitment as your Calgary director
Alberta is at a political crossroads. The United Conservative Party must synchronize its grassroots principles and values from its Members through to its MLAs, with the Board of Directors having stewardship for the Party and the Members.
The UCP is strongest when its grassroots Members are committed, informed and engaged.
As your Regional Director for Calgary, I will:
On October 16 and 17, vote for Michael LaBerge as your Calgary Director to bring your voices to the Board and strengthen our Party.
Thank you for your time, and I will see you virtually at the 2020 UCP AGM.
