The executive, based on direction and feedback from the membership, has sought to provide past service in three major areas:
- Communication with the members on issues related to Pensions and Health Services using newsletters, email blasts and our website.
- Providing subsidized social activities that are both proven and successful and that offer opportunities to have fun and learn. By using vouchers, we give back to participating members of the district.
- Ensuring our district’s opinions are known at the provincial office.
During my term of service (2007 – 2014) on the executive of District 18, Haliburton/Kawartha Lakes, I have held the positions of Secretary, Health Service Insurance Committee Rep, Political Advocacy Rep, 1st and 2nd Vice President and most recently Senator, Treasurer and President. (Yes I do have a life outside of RTO that is not impacted by this time commitment.) I have been the beneficiary of having two persons who have fulfilled the position of Newsletter Editor, Mike Catling and Pauline Johnson – both of whom have provided you with informative as well as nicely designed and presented information on the happenings in and around the district that would be of interest and benefit to you.
