The International Sailors’ Society Canada is pleased to announce that the 2021 Peter G. Bernard Volunteer Award was awarded to Sandra Attersley for her contribution and dedication to the Mission to Seafarers in Halifax.
Ms. Attersley’s commitment to the Mission is inestimable. From sharing her culinary talents in the kitchen, bookkeeping for the front office, to providing valuable advice in the boardroom, Ms. Attersley has always made herself available to the Mission. Ms. Attersley has served on the Board of Directors of the Mission to Seafarers for more than 11 years. During that time she has been part of the Executive Committee as Board Secretary, Vice-Chair, Chair and now Treasurer.
The ISSC Volunteer Award committee applauds Ms. Attersley commitment to seafarers, among other worthy groups that she supports, including the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering, Eastern Admiralty Law Association, and the Canadian Maritime Law Association. She is active in her home parish of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Dartmouth and is Part-time member at Transportation Appeal Tribunal of Canada.
A special thanks to all nominees and volunteers for giving your time, talent and skills during these extraordinary times.
