I have always thought that change is a good thing, which is why I am inspired to share some changes at LO with you. I have just returned to the Landscape Ontario office after a one-year maternity leave. I have come to realize that the more things change, the more they stay the same … in a positive way.

When I left in August, 2007, our staff of 24 had pretty much remained the same during the eight years I worked here. Since that time we have had two staff members retire, two former staffers return, one leave, two not come back from maternity leave and eight new people join us! Not to mention several changes in management and various job descriptions. I have also changed roles here at LO I will be part of the Membership Services Team and my duties will focus on some of LO’s special events and projects. These will include the awards programs, growers auction, governance training, department marketing initiatives and campaigns. I will also support the public relations department.
It’s great to be back!
