2013 Challenge & Change Conference
Well, when the dust settled after our 26th annual conference, more than 530 of you attended, and 320 came to the Schmooze on Thursday night. By all accounts, people enjoyed the great lineup of speakers ably put together by Karen Gadowsky once again. And the Schmooze was a hit yet again, although we did have to encourage a few dozen of you stragglers to leave and continue your merriment elsewhere!
At the AGM on Friday, Febrauary 15, 2013, elections were held to fill two positions, with terms beginning July 1, 2013 and running for two years. Congratulations to Mike Shaw, elected President, and Audrey Pfitzenmaier, elected Vice-President. Both will serve you well in their new roles.
At the Saturday Executive Meeting following the conference, the following appointments were made:
- Speaker Co-ordinator: Karen Gadowsky, Delta
- Conference Co-ordinator: DJ Pauls, Abbotsford
- Conference Registrar: JD Duncan, Castlegar
- Publications Manager: Mike Shaw, Penticton
- Acting Newsletter Editor: Leanne Hagglund, Vancouver
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Gordon Neufeld will be our 2014 Keynote, in addition to putting on sessions for us. Mark your calendars for February 20 & 21, 2014. We look forward to seeing you there!
