1999 Annual Report
To the Members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta:
I am very pleased to submit the 11th annual report of the Legislative Assembly Office as required by Standing Order 109, for the calendar year ended December 31, 1999. This report also includes the third annual report of the Alberta Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association.
As Speaker, it has been my pleasure to lead the staff of the Legislative Assembly Office for almost three years. This group of dedicated men and women continues to improve upon Alberta's well established reputation for quality service among our Commonwealth counterparts. They provide excellent support to the Assembly both in the Chamber and outside it. They have also served this Assembly and this province well every time they are called upon to host visiting parliamentarians or co-ordinate Assembly events. In 1999 they responded effectively on four noteworthy occasions: the Islam ceremony of Eid Al-Adha in March, the first annual Mr. Speaker's Alberta Youth Parliament in April, and in December the unveiling of Famous Five portraits and Christmas celebrations at the Legislature.
I thank members and staff who have presented papers or otherwise very ably represented our province at various interparliamentary conferences. I am grateful to all MLAs for supporting the Legislative Assembly Office and the work of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association.
Ken Kowalski, MLA
