Advocacy | Connection | Support | Compensation

DDeRosa | BCPVPAThe BCPVPA president-elect and board elections are fast approaching and as a candidate for president-elect, I would like to share with you a brief outline of my background and the professional commitment I will continue to bring to the association if elected.

I am currently the Principal at JL Crowe Secondary School, in School District No. 20 [Kootenay-Columbia]. I have been an educator for 22 years and have been an administrator for more than half of this time. For the past 2 years I have had the privilege of serving as a member of the board of directors. I continue to be an enthusiastic supporter of public education and do my best to model my belief that leaders in education are learners first.

I am passionate about the work that the BCPVPA is engaged in. We know that our roles are critical to the success of the system and a significant role of the association is to share this message with our many partners in education. As a member of the board, I fully endorse, promote and engage in our association’s strategic goals:

  • promote and advocate for the roles of principals and vice-principals,
  • use technology to enhance communication and engagement with members and other audiences,
  • build the association’s capacity to support members in their leadership roles and
  • what I believe is priority one, I will continue to strive to achieve fair and total compensation for our members.

I truly value your time and thank you for taking a minute to review this note. Please feel free to share this information with colleagues, with my full appreciation.

It has been my honour to serve our association as a member of the board for the past 2 years and I would be humbled by the privilege to continue to serve on your behalf as president-elect.

Sincere Thanks,

David DeRosa
