Top: Petros and I met with VP (Advancement) O'Neil Outar and Associate VP, Alumni Affairs about a potential program in the works called the Venture Mentoring Service. They're hiring a manager to shape and direct this program. Here's the job posting ( and an except about the position. Be sure to check it out and share it with anyone who would be a great fit:

The Office of Advancement’s Venture Mentoring Service will establish a formal mentoring program to support initiatives at the University of Alberta that enhance and diversify the University’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. The Venture Mentoring Service will complement the various courses and areas of specialization in entrepreneurship across campus, and will support entrepreneurs to achieve success with their ventures. It will provide University of Alberta students and alumni with the supports needed to launch new ventures, incorporating experienced mentors from the alumni community.

Bottom: It's been 3 days of negotiations with the local CUPE chapter and we're at the finish line! Again, I'm very grateful for the General Manager, Senior Managers, and Personnel Manager for doing such a great job in the negotiations. I couldn't have done it without them, and I appreciate all the expertise they brought to the table.
