“Outgoing” has several meanings: there is “retiring from a currently held position”, which is what I am doing, and there is “friendly and welcoming”, which is what members of our Executive Committee indeed are. It is a true pleasure to work with these very talented people. By pooling our human resources, we have had a successful year.
We provided funding for the all-candidates’ meeting last fall and partnered with other organizations to support local LGBTQ students with safe, supervised activities including recreation and a monthly coffee house. By being willing to wear multiple hats, we managed to attend most of the committee meetings in Toronto so that you would be informed and represented. Our special thanks go to our retiring secretary Max Radiff whose expertise is exceeded only by his patience.
