Since my last report in February 2013, here are the activities and/or events that I was involved with:
Ø Participated in numerous teleconference calls with the National Human Rights Committee’s Members with Disability Working Group to finalize preparations / decisions for the Equity Conference coming up in November 2013.
I’m also sitting on the Resolutions Committee at this Conference as well as being on the Steering Committee; therefore, we had a teleconference call to go through the resolutions’ concurrence and non-concurrence.
Ø Due to my health, I resigned my position with the Greater Moncton Area Council to reduce my workload and be able to continue my role as Director for Members with Disabilities.
Ø I also participated on a teleconference call with the Atlantic Council to vote on the PSAC Regional Triennial Convention’s Subsidies as we are now starting to prepare for next year’s Convention June 20-22, 2014 at the Saint John Trade and Convention Centre, Saint John, NB.
Summer months are always a bit quieter; however, fall is here and it’s going to be a very busy one. I’m looking forward to seeing some of you at the Equity Conference in November in Toronto.
