Volunteer Profile – Paul MichaelOctober 12, 2016
Meet Paul Michael, a member of our board of directors.
Michael is a lawyer with the firm of Campbell Lea in Charlottetown. He has been an avid sport fisher all of his life and cherishes the outdoor experience.
Michael has been an ASCF director representing PEI since 2007. Prior to joining the ASCF board, he was president of the PEI Council of the ASF and sat on the board of the ASF as the PEI representative.
“My involvement with ASCF has been very rewarding,” said Michael. “I think the organization does tremendous work assisting watershed groups, First Nations, and community organizations in their salmon conservation efforts. The board is a very efficient and enthusiastic working group with a great staff –all of whom are dedicated to the goals of the foundation.”
“We have seen substantial progress in achieving the foundation’s goals and look forward to continued success with our funding program. Thanks to the work of the foundation staff, we have established the Salmon Hub, a database of research and funded projects, and hold regular webinars on salmon related topics which has international appeal and participation. We encourage grass roots involvement and hope we can strengthen local groups with our programs.”
Volunteers are crucial to the work ASCF does, and each month we will introduce you to one of our stellar volunteers to say thank you for all the work they do in Atlantic salmon conservation.
