Marie Lauer knows that great leadership requires integrity and action.
That’s why you won’t see her compromising her values while working tirelessly to improve the community through her numerous volunteer commitments.
Lauer began volunteering at 17 and, when she moved to Airdrie, found it a great way to integrate into the community.
Her sharp mind and kind heart meant Lauer was asked to take on numerous leadership roles in such organizations as Airdrie Food Bank, the Primary Care Network, the Prairie Mountain Health Advisory Council and Airdrie Angels.
Most recently, Lauer ran for the position of mayor in Airdrie because she felt it was better to act than complain when she questioned the direction city council was taking.
Lauer is humble about her leadership skills.
“It’s just a matter of stepping (up) to offer the services and skills you have to make the world a better place,” she says.
Michelle Carre of Airdrie Angels is impressed by Lauer’s commitment to action.
“[Lauer] is a tireless volunteer who has given of her time, mind and heart to many different organizations,” she says. “When an opportunity presents itself to make an improvement, she runs with it.”
