Dear colleagues,

It is with mixed emotions that the Board of Directors of the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance announces that Martin Jean, Director of Education and Membership Services, has decided to retire from the CSIA after 34 years of service. Martin’s last day as a National Office staff will be June 30, 2019.

The Board of Directors would like to thank Martin for his dedication and hard work and we are proud of all his accomplishments. “Through the years, Martin has been a major thought leader and a significant contributor to the design, delivery and evolution of our educational program. Although Martin will leave the organization at the end of this coming season, his legacy will remain with us for generations.” said Robert Tousignant, Chair of CSIA’s National Board.

In announcing his retirement, Martin has written his thoughts on his journey at the CSIA…

Dear CSIA colleagues and friends,

It is with great emotion and a sense of accomplishment that I am announcing that I will be retiring from the CSIA after 34 years of service in June 2019.

I feel very privileged to have been able to fulfill my aspirations to work in ski teaching for most of my career with a great organization such as CSIA and I am proud to have contributed to its advancement. Also, I am happy to see the CSIA reach new heights as the member’s engagement, the quality of the education programs and the international recognition continue to rise every year.

I am taking this opportunity to thank all my colleagues that I worked with throughout the years, the Course Conductors for their dedication, the many volunteers on countless committees, the Board of Directors and of course the office staff for their support and friendship.

I will leave with fond memories of our time together. Thank you and see you on the slopes!

Martin Jean
