We said farewell this year to Past President Bob MacNair and Directors Dennis Pommen and Lorna Eadie Hocking and on behalf of all our members I would like to Thank them for their years of service to PROBUS Canada and express appreciation for all they did on behalf of the organization.
At our AGM in April we welcomed three new Directors to the Board in the persons of Martin Buscher, Bob Middaugh and Doug Byers who represent Ontario Districts 7, 8 & 9 - the latter two being newly created Districts. I welcome them to the Board and look forward to working with them.
In April we also welcomed Wendy Machmer as our Executive Director in the place of Lori McDowell who unfortunately had to step down for family reasons. Wendy has a tremendous amount of experience in the not-for-profit sector and I believe we will benefit greatly from that experience.
With the pandemic now thankfully in our rearview mirror I believe the future is bright for PROBUS Canada, its member Clubs and most importantly the more than 34,000 individuals who have chosen to GET CONNECTED and STAY CONNECTED with PROBUS Canada.
