I am very honoured to be moving into the important role of President of the Golden Horseshoe Chapter of CCI. This is alongside a fabulous team of fellow volunteers who serve on our board and committees. They are a great group of members who are all committed to the ongoing education of the Condo Directors and owners in our Region. Our dedicated team include lawyers, engineers, insurance professionals, finance professionals and property managers, alongside with many condo board members. Special thanks also to our guest speakers throughout the year at our events. Without all of your contributions, CCI would not exist.
Maria Durdan very successfully led our team over the past two challenging years. The pandemic has taught us many new ways to successfully communicate so that we have been able to continue to provide our important education to our members. We have all adapted well to these changes. In Maria’s new role as ‘Past President’, she will continue to be involved and support our chapter.
Moving forward for the next two years, we hope that we can continue with this efficient virtual education model which is working very successfully. However, we also would like to be able to start to include some of our wonderful in-person events as well (if pandemic restrictions allow us to). We all miss the networking, personal contact and interaction with our professional partners and condo members that our previous conferences allowed us to do.
Our virtual conference in September was a great success, thanks to Stephanie Sutherland and her team. We also had numerous virtual free events throughout the past year which were very well attended. We hope to continue to hold as many of these events as possible at no cost to our members, thanks to the sponsorships being provided by our professional partners.
Our virtual AGM was held in October. Tom Gallinger and Kevin Shaw were re-elected to the Board and we also welcome our newest condo director Tom Nederpel to our team. We are always looking for additional volunteers to our committees. Please reach out to us if you are interested in participating. We are looking forward to another great year for our chapter.
CCI Golden Horseshoe Chapter will continue to be an excellent resource for all of our condo board members.
We are grateful for your continued support of our Chapter.
