Pat Bowslaugh, Treasurer
After acquiring 34 years of pensionable service and eleven years at Brandon University, I have had the privilege of serving on the RTAM Board and its committees from the year 2001 culminating with a two year term as President from 2007-2009. This was during the horror of Bill 45 which ultimately reduced our COLA calculations as had been outlined in the Teachers’ Pension Act.
Prior to being President, it was exciting to acquire seven new RTAM chapters and serve on Political Advocacy and Membership.
While on a hiatus from serving as a Board Member, I continued being a member at large on the Benefits Committee and have served several times as its Chair.
Being reelected to the Board in 2018 I now have served two years as your Treasurer plus doing Benefits and some PR. Preparing Pre-Retirement Seminars has been on my list for several years.
When not doing RTAM work, I have served on the Provincial Exhibition Board, Sunset Rotary, Brandon School Board (12 years), fundraised for IODE and chaired our Church Board.
My family of husband, two married sons, their spouses, three granddaughters and pets rank highly in my life especially when we are on the lake boating or on the ocean cruising.
