It is my pleasure to write to you after a successful 2023 OHEA Annual Meeting. At the meeting, there were several OHEA Past Presidents present, and a couple of people who attended their their first Annual Meeting,
Then, reports were given, there was discussion about member engagement and elections were carried out.
After the elections, Jason Eaton, Cailin Whincop, Allison Teich, Cathy Enright, Roula Hawa, Mary Carver, and myself, Camille Naranjit remain on the OHEA Board of Directors to serve you.
I am giving a warm welcome to Linda Robbins, our newly acclaimed secretary-treasurer. She brings forth a wealth of experience from her past involvement with CHEA. We look forward to working with her in her term to come.
On a sadder note after serving OHEA well, we say goodbye to Brooke McLean, Taylor Page, Ranuri Kandumulla, and Shelby Weaver, and thank them for their dedication and service to our association.
At present, the branch representatives (except Ottawa Branch as Mary has decided to stay on) and the student liaison will be appointed and notify us prior to starting up again in September.
At present there are still vacancies (VP Communications, VP Social media, 1 VP Public Policy, VP Professional Development, 1 Member-at-Large) and we are looking to appoint members in good standing. Please, if you have a slight interest in stepping up in volunteering with a project or joining our Board of Directors, we would love to hear from you. Also, if you can think of a colleague who is a member of OHEA who may be interested, please invite the member to contact us. We will give you information with no strings attached.
Simply email Eileen for more information at EileenOHEA@outlook.com.
Have a wonderful summer.
