President

Lukas Neamtu

Lukas Neamtu is serving as the President on SASHA's Board of Directors. During the day he works for the University of Lethbridge where he coordinates applied study courses and co-operative education work terms. It was actually through working with a number of applied study students who worked at SASHA that he learned what the organization does and how important their work is. Combine that with his belief that good people know good people, and joining the Board of Directors was a very easy decision. He is proud to serve SASHA so that the amazing work and impact can continue.
