We’re welcoming a new member to the NOW team: Shamus Reid. He’ll be tackling a big pile of research and a few special projects — finding new ways to improve and extend the support we can offer clients. Shamus comes to us with a wealth of experience from the student movement, the communications field and in electoral campaigning. In fact, he recently served as the NDP’s BC Press Secretary during the 2011 Federal election campaign.
Sadly, Shamus will be with us for a good time, but not a long one… as he’ll be returning to academia in the Fall. Although, we just might try and convince him that we’re more fun than papers.
