I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the fall.
At our Annual Meeting in June we welcomed three new Board Members, Ray Rosettani, Nathaniel Brettle, and Dean Demizio. They will be a welcome addition to our Board for the coming year of 2015/2016.
We also bid farewell to Pam Coulthurst and Liz Majkut, both served as valued and respected Board Members for 10 years. They will be missed.
We continue to work on our Strategic Plan and our Inclusion Agenda, this at times can be a challenge but we feel we are making great progress on behalf of the many individuals and their families we support in our Community.
The summer was a busy one for everyone and we saw many opportunities for growth and development arise as a result of Community acceptance and support.
I hope you all will join us on November 21st, 2015 at the Leisureplex for our annual fundraiser. It is an evening of fun and celebration. Tickets can be purchased at our office.
Our organization will be seeking re-accreditation this year. We are currently preparing for this and are looking forward to the experience of holding ourselves accountable against standards in the Developmental Sector.
As your newly elected President, I welcome any suggestions, concerns or input.
Thanks to everyone for their continued support and encouragement.
