Getting to Know Your Trillium Council – Emma Roberts

CSAE Trillium Council represents members across our regional network. This series of articles will allow you to get to know the volunteers who make up the 2021-2022 Council. Each Council member was asked to answer questions about their professional and personal lives – to share a little of themselves. Our next Council profile is of one of our new Council members, Emma Roberts.

When asked about her motivation to join the Council, Emma stated:

I have always enjoyed volunteering in our industry, having previously held roles with MPI and attending events through CSAE, PCMA, AMCI, MPI and others. Having my daughter settled in JK this year, I’m now eager to dive back in and serving with CSAE has long been a goal.

When asked what she wished all members knew about the Council, Emma responded:

As a newcomer to council I’m still learning the ropes, but it immediately struck me how many of the incumbents serve on multiple committees and how hard they work for our members!

Other than Council, Emma is also involved on the following committee:

I just joined PDX.

When asked “what three words would your best friend use to describe you?”, Emma had the following to say:

We just did this exercise together actually! Her picks were “Thoughtful, kind, detail-oriented aka critical path obsessed.”

When asked what she would do if she won the lottery, Emma said:

Thanks to COVID, having not seen my family in Ireland since 2019 when my daughter was 18 months old, I’d make it a priority for us all to be able to get together, somewhere, somehow.

Emma’s proudest accomplishment is:

Moving to Canada at 20 and establishing a career and life here.

And one thing that people would be surprised to know about Emma is:

People seem to be shocked that I’m turning 40 in May, but it’s sadly true.
