rating. Under Garner's direction, not only
did incorporation put in place a protective
legal framework for the organization, but he
believes it helps to legitimize all that they do.
Garner takes great pride in what he does
and who he serves, but he is not officially a
member. "Interestingly, it is only recently-
based on changes to the ITE bylaws-that I
would qualify for membership. Having said
that, being an ITE member, in my mind, has
one key and overarching benefit: that is the
community built around the organization. I
have met so many great people doing great
work through ITE. It's the community that
really matters, and ITE is a good one!"
CITE is indeed a strong community and
clearly in good hands with Steven Garner's
consistent behind-the-scenes work. Yet
perhaps one of the keys to his success is
achieving balance while pursuing his many
interests, whether that's on the land, on the
sea, or in the sky. His academic career began
in visual fine arts, and he still breaks out
the paints and easel or grabs his camera to
experiment with photography. As an avid
sailor, you can find him with his wife Shelley
and their puppy Luna, an Icelandic Sheepdog, heading out to enjoy the beautiful
waters around Southern Vancouver Island.
He also enjoys flying and is three-quarters
of the way to completing his private pilot's
licence. Although, things are at a stand-still
with COVID-19, he looks forward to completing the requirements as soon as he's able. In
the meantime, this renaissance man reflects
on the attitude that helped him succeed.
"Do things willingly to help people and don't
think about what's in it for you. The sooner
you can do this, the faster you will surround
yourself with good people and success." itej
