The Highest Public Calling
A Ronning Forum with Verlyn Olson, MLA for Wetaskiwin-Camrose
The Ronning Centre launches a series of conversations on the highest public calling with those who serve the public in the political arena. They are invited to reflect on the place of faith in their formation, on how religious discipline, ideas and values are at work in moulding their aspirations, judgments and ability to live with "the organized inadequacies of history". We also invite them to think publically about the complex nature of decision-making in the context of competing values and responsibilities.
Mr. Olson was elected to his first term as a Member of the Legislative Assembly for Wetaskiwin-Camrose on March 3, 2008. He is Chair of the Private Members Business Committee, Chair of the First Nations, Metis and Inuit Workforce Planning Committee and is a member of various committees including the Legislative Review Committee. He was a partner with the law firm of Andreassen Olson Borth, and he holds a Bachelor of Arts in History degree with Distinction from the University of Alberta. He has a distinguished history of community service in the region, including work in the athletic, health care and educational sectors.
