The executive board for 2018 was presented to the OFPA membership at their Fall Meeting and Annual General Meeting on November 22, 2017. Outgoing members of the executive board include 2017 President, Katherine Di Tommaso and Past President Moustapha Oke. We have welcomed five new Board Members for 2018 – Cameron Prince, Hanie Ahmadi, Kristen Green, Nadia Narine and Rupali Sanas. That’s because we had to say farewell to several Board Members in 2018 – past President Katherine Di Tommaso, as well as Andrew Sweet, Martha Palomar, and Tatiana Koutchma. In addition, Director Shirley May Chalouh has moved to the OFPA position of Executive Assistant and Cameron Prince has since left the board. Our new Directors bring a lot of energy to the OFPA and we thank them for their contributions. We also thank our past Directors and Executive for their dedication and hard work in keeping OFPA the great Association that it is!
Moving to the President position will be Ananth Kasic with the Vice President position being filled by Angela Bernoski. Joe Myatt has moved into the position of Treasurer. We wish them well in progressing the growth of the Association over the next year.
