CCI-Golden Horseshoe Chapter Annual General Meeting - Fall 2017

Thirty-five years is a long time. I have not been around CCI that long, but I can only imagine that the founders of CCI would be very pleased to see how it has grown and thrived. It has been a challenge to grow a national organization that still recognizes the difference in legal and market landscapes throughout its regions, but the fact that we have done this and are continuing to grow is a testimony to those founders and their vision, all the hardworking and dedicated volunteers that followed throughout CCI’s history, and all of you who continue to work across this great country of ours to improve the lives of condominium owners. In many ways, CCI is like Canada, strong in its diversity and even stronger together.

This year has seen many great developments, including the creation of the Grand River Chapter. With the creation of the Grand River Chapter, we are now 17 chapters-strong. I want to thank all the volunteers of the Grand River Chapter and the Goldon Horseshoe Chapter that made this transition go smoothly. We have also seen some new great initiatives like the Great Canadian Condo Contest, and the expansion of the Condo Strength Program. There have also been challenges, such as the emergence of new organizations competing for our members’ attention.

We have also taken on the challenge of looking at how CCI will need to adapt in this changing world in order to grow and serve the Canadian condominium community in the next 35 years. Changing member demographics, the rise of mobile and short form media, the impact of free online content and social media competing for members’ attention are just some of the challenges facing traditional membership-oriented organizations like CCI. To that end, CCI has undertaken an examination of itself, how it delivers services, and how it funds itself. Working with the leadership of all chapters and committees, this process is well under way and I am confident that it will result in a re-invigorated and stronger CCI.

While looking into the future is necessary and very important, so is continuing to serve our members as we have done in the past. Your volunteers in the Golden Horseshoe Chapter have had a successful year and have worked very hard. In particular, we congratulate your volunteers for ensuring the smooth transition of members into the new Grand River Chapter while continuing to offer your ever popular Lunch & Learn sessions, courses and delivering top notch publications to your membership. When you reflect on the year that CCI and your Chapter has had, please recognize, as I do, the role of everyone that provides their time and energy in assisting your Chapter in its activities. Without volunteers, CCI would cease to function. Not only time and energy, but creative thinking and dedication are given by many. On behalf of all CCI, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation and thank all the volunteers that have made the world for condominiums, and CCI, better.
From all of us and National, thank you for your contributions, thank you for your time, thank you for your energy. I hope you have a great annual meeting and look forward to our continued mutual success in 2017-2018.
Best regards,
Doug Forbes
CCI National President
