Skate Canada BC/Yukon is thrilled to announce that Susan Heffernan, one of our long time British Columbia and Canadian officials has been awarded the ISU Gold Award of Merit for her valuable contribution to the ISU.

The ISU Gold Award of Merit may be awarded at the discretion of the ISU Council to recognize valuable contributions to the ISU sports at the international level. This award may only be made to Office Holders and other individuals who have served the ISU sport disciplines.

Susan has made valuable contributions to the ISU over her career particularly in the area of officials education. Although she is officially retired as an ISU Technical Controller and Referee for Singles and Pairs, she continues to judge provincially and nationally.  In addition,  Susan continues to contribute to skater, coach, and officials development at the section and national level. Her lifetime of officiating here in BC has been immensely important to the success of our sport in the province of British Columbia. 

We congratulate Susan and thank her for extraordinary contributions and exceptional service to our sport.

Congratulations Susan!
