  • Claire Langfield, Executive Assistant

    Chippewas of Rama First Nation

I have received positive comments and feedback from several of my colleagues on the changes between my first attempt and current expertise creating the monthly internal newsletter for my department. They enjoy the updated format and the way in which the information is presented.
