Dear Colleagues,

My name is Linda Howes.  As of June 1, 2018, I am your Prairie/NWT Representative on the National Executive of the Audit, Commerce and Purchasing Group (AV), representing AU-CO-PG Classification members within the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC).

See our entire list of Executives:

As the Regional Representative my main responsibility as per our Constitution By-Laws is as follows;

6.7.5 Regional Representative To act as liaison between the Group Executive and their Regional members, represent the interests of the members, assist in organizing and maintaining Sub-group representation, and perform such duties as may be assigned by the Executive.

Furthermore, since we have two Subgroups in the Prairies/NWT Region, Winnipeg and Saskatoon, I want to:

  1. To be a resource to AV Prairie/NWT Members and Stewards.  This includes providing information to members and stewards, answering questions and bringing forward their concerns or issues during AV national executive meetings (held 5 times a year), to facilitate and/or provide lunch and learns or presentation on topics of member interest, and
  2. To be a resource to areas not currently represented by an AV Subgroup or wanting to organize regional AV subgroups.

If you need any information, or you have issues you wish to be brought forward to the National AV Group Executive next meeting in late September, or would like further information on forming your local AV Regional Subgroups, having lunch and learns information sessions, or other presentations please contact me via email at  or via phone at (204) 599-1633.


Better Together!

Linda Howes
