CANTO CSR Chair Invites Members to be Agents of Change
  In March 2017, I was selected to become Chairman of the CANTO CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Committee. I am humbled by the appointment and look forward to doing work that drives CSR in CANTO and throughout the region.
Having some considerable experience as a Public Relations practitioner CSR is my "VALHALLA" It is a place I hope to reach, a mythical place, and my journey to that place will continue as I work with CANTO and within this region.
In my experiences however, I feel relatively comfortable stating that a lot of Public Relations passes as C.S.R and affords organizations the opportunity to call themselves good corporate citizens.  I am not vexed but saddened by same and feel called to a higher place, the place where I want C.S.R to mean something (to you), something different, to all the members of CANTO.
