We very much appreciate the participation of our members to the Annual General Meeting, either by proxy or via Zoom. For those of you who were unable to join us, we hope you will enjoy reading about it. Thank you for your Service The success and strength of the CCI London and Area Chapter is owing to the exceptional people who volunteer so much toward what we have to offer our members. At the most recent AGM on September 21 st , 2021, we acknowledged the contributions and thanked Jeffrey Bell of Scott Petrie LLP (15 years) and Victoria Phillips of HighPoint Property Management Corporation (3 years) for their service to the CCI Board of Directors and the community. Welcome Directors to the CCI Board An agenda item to the AGM is the Election of Directors to the CCI. Board We are so pleased to welcome Séan Eglinton of Thorne Property Management Ltd ., returning for a 2 nd term of 3 years; and also new directors Heather Dickenson of Dickenson Condo Management and Dave Leff of TLC Landscaping and Design for 3 - year terms. Our board is made stronger by the expertise we draw on from our Board Members. Following the AGM, it was discovered that one director was left off the proxy. The end of her term of office had also come due for Tricia Baratta. In accordance with Section 4.02 of the CCI London and Area Chapter By - law, at a meeting of the Board of Directors on October 19 th , a motion was made to appoint Tricia Baratta as vice - president and accepted. Tricia may choose to stand for re - election for a 2 - year term at the next AGM. Our sincere apologies to Tricia for this error. Special Presentation Subsequent to the business portion of our Annual General Meeting, we welcomed you all to the Special Presentation, “ Avoiding Disaster: Maintenance, Repairs & Miami ”. Thanks so much for the many hours our professional presenters Joe McGowan of Edison Engineers Inc., Laura Gurr of Cohen Highly LLP, S ean Eglinton of Thorne Property Management Ltd. and Lyndsey McNally of CWB Maximum Financial put into this excellent presentation. Thanks too, to Kristi Sargeant - Kerr who moderated the event and Jennifer Dickenson who monitored the Chat Room. We are more than grateful to them all for their expertise. The takeaway from the special presentation, was informative and relevant for every board to consider during their duties as directors and for those professionals who are working with boards and managers on projects small and large. The importance of engaging professionals to assist in projects and how you proceed with them vis a vis the required expertise that is necessary continues to be significant. No project should be considered less than important to get the proper advice and preferably in advance.
