President's Message - Spring 2015

Lucie Hamelin - Spring has sprung… finally! Our provincial events calendar is winding down and it’s time to start planning next year. Like summer, our “off season” is very short and we have a lot to do before August 1st.

Sub-Committees
Firstly, the response to our call for volunteers has been absolutely overwhelming! Thank you to all the fencers, coaches and parents who put together very well thought-out submissions. Laurence and I have done a first draft of the composition of each committee. A great many of you indicated an interest in several committees. Our goal is it get the right people, in the right seats while keeping our committees at a manageable size (with a few exceptions, 5 members per committee is our max). The draft structure was submitted to the Board for discussion and approval at our April 26th meeting. Since then, Laurence has been communicating with committee chairs, draft terms of reference documents have been prepared for each committee and we are ready to go! The board will approve the committee terms of reference documents at our next meeting and these will be posted on the website in early June. We have assembled an incredible pool of talent and I am very excited about the outcome.
