Anne Haley-Callaghan

Board Member since 2013

Anne Haley-Callaghan joined the Canadian Ski Patrol in 1983. She became actively involved in education and operations from the very beginning. Career and personal circumstances have given Anne the opportunity to move across Canada and as such belong to four Divisions: Atlantic West, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and since 2007 Mountain Division. During her years with the CSP Anne has served at all levels in operations including three years as Division President in Saskatchewan. She has received awards at the Zone, Division and National level culminating with CSP Life Member #68 and Mountain Division Life Member # 26.

Anne is a retired Registered Nurse by profession and worked in management positions for more than 30 years, the last 4 years as Executive Director Integrated Health Services, Kelsey Trail Health Region, Tisdale Saskatchewan. In her positions with health services she has been actively involved in accreditation processes, budget development and management, strategic planning, major direction changes and re-organizations. The constantly changing world of health care has provided experience and knowledge that Anne has brought to all the positions that she has held within the CSP.

In the spring of 2016, Anne became the Corporate Secretary of the Board.  In March of 2017 she was elected by her fellow board members as Chairperson of the Canadian Ski Patrol Board of Directors, the first female patroller to hold this position. During the summer of 2018 Anne filled in for the President and CEO until the position was filled: a period of three months.

Anne resumed the position of corporate secretary upon stepping down as chairperson in June 2019. The role of interim President and CEO was once again assumed in April 2020 and continued until the hire of the Co-Executive Directors in early November 2020

Anne is an active patroller at Hidden Valley Ski Area in Palliser Zone, Mountain Division and is a rostered patroller at her local ski area.

Anne is fluent in both official languages; an essential asset in communications with all members across the country. Communication between all levels of the organization is a crucial factor in moving forward with change.

The next few years will see the CSP landscape evolve as we continue to adapt to the needs of our members and partners. This exciting and productive period will require an enormous amount of commitment in time and energy. Our leaders must be willing to be part of the change and have the interest and commitment in seeing this enormous task through.
