President's September Report(posted: September 3, 2019)
Dear Brother and Sisters,
WORLD DAY OF THE POOR
Pope Francis has declared the Third World Day of the Poor to be November 17, 2019.
Promotional materials have been created by National Council of Canada to be used by Conferences, Councils and SSVP Stores to help raise awareness of the World Day of the Poor Campaign. These materials are now available.
Konrad shares his experience attending his first National AGA.
A call was recently organized on August 10 with International President Renato Lima de Oliveira who answered questions. There is another call taking place October 27 and information will be shared in October on how you can participate in this call.
Sarah Davidson will be reaching out to Presidents starting late September/early October to update our database with new Executive contact information. Please respond to Sarah quickly when you receive her request.
A reminder to ensure proper screening is done when new members come on board including the Abuse, Discrimination and Harassment Prevention training. If you have not already confirmed with Sarah that you have completed the Abuse, Discrimination and Harassment Prevention training with your existing members, please advise firstname.lastname@example.org as this is required for the protection of the Society, our members and the people we serve, as well as being an insurance requirement.
New member engagement strategy
Feel free to contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org at any time should you have questions.
Thank you to our 5,000 members across Ontario for all your amazing work reaching out and helping persons in need.
