MRSA Professional Development Day


Reignite: Community, Resiliency, Wellness

The focus of this year’s theme is to provide a meaningful and refreshing professional development day so that attendees feel reignited to improve their community and wellness and believe that they are among the most resilient. We all face many challenges within the workplace and we want everyone to leave the day feeling empowered and confident that they have the tools to rekindle their passion for the Mount Royal University community, their personal wellness, and the knowledge that they are amazing in their proven ability to move forward despite challenges.


The event will be held at The Commonwealth Centre 1177-3961 52 Ave NE on Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
Carpooling is encouraged!  Reach out to the community to make arrangements with your colleagues.

All MRSA members, Exempt and Management are invited to attend.

We are busy in the developing stages, and we have some interesting topics and great speakers lined up for the day:

Joyce Sunada
Workshop Title: Reignite Your Wellness – Reignite Your Community

Check out Joyce’s welcome video – there’s a little pre-PD Day homework we need to do!

Joyce Sunada has been an educator for over 30 years.  During that time she was a teacher, an administrator and provincial leader who helped create and support healthy school communities. Joyce is now a professional speaker and wellness coach, and continues to educate people on the importance of personal wellness.

Stuart Ellis-Myers
Workshop Title: Unstoppable! Reignite: More Community! More Resiliency! More Wellness!!!

What would you do if, out of the blue, your life turned upside down? What if you went from being a happy, healthy, normal child and suddenly became an anxious, depressed, twitchy mess of devastating proportion? This is exactly what happened to Stuart Ellis-Myers. At the age of eight, Stuart began to develop one of the most misunderstood mental illnesses of our time . . . Tourette’s Syndrome.

Loose Moose Theatre Company–back by popular demand!

The Loose Moose Theatre Company was founded in 1977 and has gained an international reputation for excellence and innovation in improvisational theatre.

We’ll close our day together with their “Improv Show”.  It’s sure to entertain and leave us with smiles all around.

We’re looking forward to a PD Day that’s filled with fun and information you can use.  An opportunity to celebrate each other and the many ways we make a difference each and every day.
