From the Executive Director
The Centre is having one of its busiest years on record, as the impressive range of activities described in this issue of Inside Language shows. I am happy to report that our projects are going well.
Since our last newsletter in September, we have been busy not only with projects, but with attending and presenting at a number of conferences (in particular TESL Ontario), and with assisting with the Board’s agenda.
We held in Ottawa an orientation day for our new Board members. We had our quarterly Board meeting in September. The Audit and Risk Management Committee met to update our Risk Management Plan and assess the Centre’s financial health. The Nominating and Board Evaluation Committee met to review the upcoming vacancies on the Board and to discuss a succession strategy. The CELBAN Committee met to discuss our Partnership Agreement with Red River College regarding the administration of the nursing language assessment. And we are now preparing for the upcoming Board meeting, December 10.
On the staffing side, there have been two additions. Kathy Hughes recently joined the CLB program and Monique Glandon the NCLC program.
We are looking forward to a busy winter and spring.
Please note that our offices will be closed starting December 24th 2013 at noon until January 1st 2014 inclusively, as well as February 17th 2014 for Ontario Family Day.
Veuillez noter que nos bureaux seront fermés du 24 décembre 2013, à partir de midi, jusqu’au 1 janvier 2014 inclusivement, ainsi que le 17 février 2014 pour le Jour de la famille en Ontario.
