At the Annual General Meeting held on June 27, the members of La Fab elected their new board of directors: Gabriel Bouffard, Chair; Michael Peterson, Vice-chair; Danielle Pronovost, Treasurer; Katharine Fletcher, Secretary; Kevin Burke, representative of the Building Committee; Jovette Champagne, representative of the Communications Committee; Johanne Sylvestre, representative of the Gallery Committee; Sophie Guindon and Alisha Reilly-Roe, representatives of the the Studio Committee, and Heath Baxa, representative of the St.Stephen Church's administration.
On July 14, Board members held a one-day retreat to take stock of La Fab's situation and develop strategic directions to guide their future decisions. Claudine Charet from the CLD des Collines de l'Outaouais and Julie Martineau from Culture Outaouais attended and provided very good advice. All participants were encouraged by the results of the meeting. The following day, the Board met with Chelsea Mayor, Caryl Green, to seek advice on some of their projects.
In short, the new board is up and running and would like to take this opportunity to recognize the hard work, inspired contributions, dedication, and also the good humour of outgoing Board members Reid McLachlan, Janice Collette, Heather Lamorie and Shannon Langlois.
