Connie Newman is the Executive Director (consultant) for the Manitoba Association of Senior Centres (MASC). MASC is a member association comprising 52 member Senior Centres. She travels the province providing guidance and encouragement to their member centres.

Connie is a member of Manitoba’s Age Friendly Resource Team which provides her with opportunities to connect with local Age Friendly committees all around Manitoba. She is also a member of the Manitoba Seniors Coalition (formerly Seniors Vote 2016).

She is 70 years young – in her other life she was a junior high teacher/principal for 34 years. She believes in active aging and all that it means: keeping one’s mind and body active helps her to assist those around her who may need information and support as we all age together.
