A Word from the President - Fall 2014

Hello all,

My name is Marc Robitaille and your Board of directors chose me, in June, to be your president for the coming year. I am deeply honored by this decision and will fulfil my functions to the best of my knowledge with the help of the more experienced members of the Board.

I intend to follow in my predecessor’s footsteps as Florent’s objective was to find more ways to attract a new clientele and grow our Association membership. We will have to be creative and make innovative use of new technologies. Our new Web site will be our main communications tool.

At the end of August, your Board of directors met to approve the strategic plan that was developed by the commanders over the last year. Then, we determined an action plan based on the areas of interest of our current and future members. Both the strategic plan and the action plan are published in this issue of Les Robitailleries. We welcome your feedback on those as your comments and suggestions will fuel further discussions.

I wish you all a nice fall season and hope that our discussions will be fruitful in this period of harvest.

Marc Robitaille, your president 2014-2015
