Hello GGG Members -

Given that the current COVID-19 situation makes it impossible for the GGG to connduct monthly meetings until October (at the earliest), we would like to remind members that the fall is the time for our Annual General Meeting and the election of new Executive Officers for the coming year.

Several of the current Executive Officers have been serving the GGG for several years and it is desirable to change the make-up of the Executive Committee on a regular basis. Therefore, we invite each of you to consider putting your name forward to serve on the Committee in one of the Executive Officer positions. Some existing Executive Officers will continue to serve on the Committee so plenty of knowledge and support will be there to assist new Executive Officers.

Below is a summary of the functions of each Executive Officer position. Should you be interested in serving the GGG as an Executive Officer or have questions about these positions, please contact Helen Porteous at 613-821-3685 or Lee Nickerson at 613-594-0214.
