Dear Members of Choral Canada,
We have good news to share with you! Please check out the upcoming edition of Anacrusis for full details, but here are some highlights, in brief:
1. Choral Canada has achieved RNASO status = Registered National Arts Service Organization. Thanks to the sustained diligence of Board Members and most especially of Denise Gress, our Treasurer and former Interim Administrator, RNASO status was granted.
2. I would like to extend a warm welcome to new Board members:
*Diana Clark of British Columbia - VP of Advocacy Role
*Charles Decroix - the new Executive Director of Alliance des chorales du Québec
*Shawn Henry - the new Executive Director of the New Brunswick Choral Federation
...and to previously appointed Vice-President positions now elected:
*Dr. Rachel Rensink-Hoff of Ontario - VP Programs & Services
*Dr. Dominic Gregorio of Saskatchewan - VP of Communications
*Denise Gress of Saskatchewan - Treasurer
We say a fond farewell and heartfelt thanks to:
*Dr. Joel Tranquilla (BC) who started a family in June with the addition of baby Everett.
*Dr. Jakub Martinec (NL) who was appointed Director of the prestigious Bruni Institute at Memorial University and therefore must step down as our Secretary.
*Alain Lanctôt, the former Executive Director of Alliance des chorales du Québec
*Dianne Roxborough-Brown, the former Executive Director of the New Brunswick Choral Federation.
3. Membership renewals are fast approaching (October 1st) - we'll be looking to YOU and we challenge you to bring a friend into the fold. Our community of choral music lovers needs your ideas, your energy, your passion.
I hope you have all enjoyed a healthy summer with some sweet R&R. See you at Podium 2016 in Edmonton!
