Happy Fall to everyone!
I wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone know about recent changes to the PMI OVOC Board of Directors. This past month we have had three board members resign for family reasons. I would like to thank Aline Timeto (VP Volunteers), Estela Tavares (VP Membership), and Robin Coates (VP Sponsorship) for the work that they have done as part of our board.
Now I would like to welcome three new board members who will be serving as appointed members until the elections next spring:
- Alexandre Thome, who was part of the Membership Taskforce has agreed to take on the role of VP Membership
- Nathaniel Bruni, who was a member of the Volunteer Team has agreed to take on the role of VP Volunteers
- Srinivas Maram, who ran for election this year, has agreed to take on the role of VP Sponsorship.
The Chapter’s Annual Symposium is taking place from 23 – 25 October at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre. The theme for this year is “Dynamic Leadership — Evolution of the 21st Century Leader.” Registration is currently open, and I encourage those who have not yet registered to do so. Pete Grieve, the Symposium Chair, and his team have put together an excellent program of events. I hope to see everyone there.
President, PMI OVOC
