JASON ALCORN (SAINT JOHN)Jason Alcorn

Dear Colleagues,

I am offering to serve as Treasurer of CBA-NB. 
 
I was called to the Bar in 2006 and have worked exclusively in the field of securities regulation for the Financial and Consumer Services Commission (NB). 
 
I am a graduate of UNB Saint John (BA, 1998) and the Université de Moncton (LLB, 2005). I earned graduate degrees from the National School of Administration in France (MPA, 2015) and the Paris Institute of Political Studies (MA, 2001). 
 
I am a frequent guest lecturer in the MBA program at UNB Saint John, and the Faculties of Law at UNB and Moncton. I currently serve on the Board of Governors of the Université de Moncton, serve as public representative and chair of the governance committee of CPA NB, serve as a member of the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation, and was recently appointed to the finance committee of the YMCA of Greater Saint John. In 2016-17, I was appointed to the Commission on Electoral Reform. I have served as the chair of the Law Society Provincial Libraries Committee since 2013.
 
Why am I offering to serve? Our profession has afforded me a multitude of learning experiences, both personal and professional. I feel like now is the perfect time to start giving back to the profession in return. I look forward to the challenges and responsibilities that being Treasurer of CBA-NB will present. 
 
I would appreciate your support and thank you for your consideration.

Jason Alcorn, (506) 643-7857
