Burlington, ON (May 4, 2017) Recipients have been revealed for the Trillium Gives Back (TGB) scholarship program and one of our own has been named among the list of award winners. Brynne Wrigley, Association Manager at Essentient was part of a select group of executive and business chapter members to be given news last month.
The TGB scholarship was designed as an opportunity for the Trillium Chapter of the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE) to provide recognition and financial support to members of the chapter who are highly engaged and who exhibit leadership as well as motivational and inspirational qualities that exemplify the best of those working in the association sector.
“Brynne has quickly become an integral part of the Essentient team and has proven herself to be a very thoughtful and creative association professional,” said Constance Wrigley-Thomas CAE and CEO of Essentient Association Management. “Her value to our clients and to the work we do on their behalf cannot be understated. Using the TGB scholarship funds to further her professional development will only serve to increase that value as well as increase her confidence and capabilities as an association professional.”
Before joining the staff at Essentient in late 2015, Ms. Wrigley worked for over four years at the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC), first as Membership Services Specialist and then as Education Coordinator. Her previous work experience also includes managerial positions with two high-profile Canadian retailers.
In the spirit of the scholarship, Ms. Wrigley is a firm believer in giving back to the community and has dedicated time over the last three years as a volunteer with the Canadian Mental Health Assocation (CMHA). In 2016, she became a volunteer coordinator and active committee member for the CMHA Halton Region’s annual Ride Don’t Hide event which raises critical funds as well as awareness in an effort to help break the stigma surrounding issues of mental health.
An avid cyclist herself, Ms. Wrigley can often be found on local trails and bike lanes. She has recently moved into a loft apartment where she shares space with a cat named Bunny.
