Vice Governor

Fellow Kin,

I am extremely proud to serve this organization as Vice Governor for the 2019 – 2020 Kin year. The opportunity to represent Kin Canada’s District 7 in this role is truly a privilege and is not taken lightly.

District 7 has consistently produced strong leaders who represent the values we hold true while focusing on the challenges of tomorrow. This year will be no different. I look forward to learning from Governor Pat and his team as we continue on a path to success.

I have been a member of the New Glasgow Kinsmen for the past 22 years. I am a proud father of two amazing teenager daughters. Throughout my Kin career, they have participated in projects ranging from food bank drives and MS Walks to Kinsmen Baseball and Power Skating programs. My children understand the role Kin plays in helping those in need and they inspire me to expand my level of commitment.

Kin Canada offers our members opportunities for personal and professional development. In 2012, I received my Master of Business Administration degree from Saint Mary’s University. It has been a lifelong goal and one that I would not have been successful in achieving without the skills learned through Kin.

Originally from Cape Breton, I relocated to New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in 1997. I have had the pleasure to work for Sobeys for the past 28 years and am currently the Logistics Manager for Atlantic Canada. From bagging groceries to managing distribution centers and finance departments, experience has taught me that strong leaders come from strong teams. I truly believe that District 7 represents the best that Kin has to offer and for that reason, I am extremely honored to be given the opportunity to lead our team in 2020 – 2021.

I look forward to meeting you all this coming year and encourage you to share your thoughts, ideas and opinions.

Yours in Kin,
Al MacQuarrie
Vice Governor 2019 – 2020
