Region 1 Conference in New Jersey Well Attended

A delegation of 19 members were in attendance at the Region 1 Conference out of an approximate 120 total participants. Marie Clarke-Walker, Isabelle Miller, Holmann Richard, and Chris Wilson were all speakers/panellists bringing the Canadian perspective to the Women's, Men's, and Strategy sections of the conference. Yolanda McLean and Megan Whitfield assisted newly-acclaimed first-ever female Region 1 Director Sharon Lovelady-Hall with her Leadership workshop. Hans-Woosly Balan, Pierre-Richard Joseph and Holmann Richard arrived ready to man our fundraising booth, but unfortunately the border patrol denied our Chapter access to carry our promotional goods across the border so there was no chapter fundraising done this time. Thanks to Andrea McCormack for making the attempt to transport our goods, and next time, we may have to ask you to show a little leg:) Kidding!

Update on Our Chapter President

Our Chapter President Janice Gairey recently took a tumble down the front steps of the OFL Building, suffering major bruising to her legs and face. Luckily the extent of the physical damage was not more serious, but as a result she is not at work and was not able to be present at the Region 1 conference. We all wish Janice a speedy recovery, and I am sure she will be good to hit the dance floor at the dinner dance!

New Region 1 Logo Submitted for a Vote

One of our members, Liam Joseph, has submitted a new Region 1 logo design to the Region's officers for approval. The design is a little more consistent with our Chapter's new logo that debuted earlier this year, in an attempt to revamp the CBTU look. So far the logo received positive reviews. We'll keep you posted on whether the Regional approves it for use or not.
