Dear members,

It is with great pleasure that I agreed to return to the Board of directors of our Association after five years. Furthermore, since the presidency had not been filled, the other members of the Board made me the honour of suggesting my name for the position.

To support me in this endeavour, Marc Robitaille will be our vice-president and Paul Robitaille and Micheline Dusseault will be treasurer and secretary of the Board, respectively. The following directors are also on the Board: Diane Robitaille-Brisson, Louise Robitaille-Roy, Marjolaine Michaud, Pierre Robitaille and René Robitaille (of St-Lambert). Our commanders, Claire, Nicole, René (of Québec) and Gaston, will continue to provide wise council and take on special mandates from the Board.
