Chapter business
Chapter update and elections will be held first at 11:00. A total of four positions are open for election (president, secretary, and two vice presidents). Our current president, Bob Hughes, has indicated that he does not wish to serve another term (see message below). Please give some thought to giving back to your chapter by standing for any one of these positions. Here are some details on the time/role commitment; of course, if you have questions about any position in particular, you are welcome to contact that person directly (Executive contact list).

Many thanks to Bob Hughes and Deborah Shelton, who have agreed to conduct our 2016 elections. Nominations should be directed to Bob at president@bytownchapter.com in advance or can be conveyed to him or Deb at the meeting. If you are nominating someone other than yourself, you must ensure that you obtain that person’s approval first.

Cause of Choice
Following elections, a representative of the Najda Refugee Sponsor group (www.najda.ca; Facebook page – Najda: Parrains de Réfugiés / Refugee Sponsors) will tell us a bit about the group’s goals and the status of its request for a refugee family to be housed locally, and will answer questions from members.

Message from Bob Hughes
After 5 years as president of the By-Town Chapter, I will be stepping down to make way for a new president. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed myself in this role, it is time for someone new. Over the past five years, we have seen other changes on the executive committee, and I firmly believe that this ongoing process of executive committee change, of bringing in new people and new ideas, has contributed in large part to the continuing success of this chapter.

I urge you to consider standing for election to the By-Town Chapter Executive. The workload and time commitment of executive committee members is not heavy, thanks in large part to the administrative improvements introduced by the executive over the past five years.
