We hope that you attended our last luncheon meeting at the new venue, The Mill St. Brew Pub. We had an excellent turn out, but from the feedback we received, we need to work a bit on the menu.

Some of you were able to attend the Canadian Risk Management Conference in St. John's, Newfoundland, and we hope that you were able to get the most out of it.

The Christmas Luncheon is not too far away.  The notification for it should be out this week. Please mark your calendars for December 5, 2018, to attend the luncheon. The topic, “Work and Life Balance", should be of interest to all.

As every year, we will be collecting much needed articles for men (toothpaste, soap, socks, mittens, gloves, hats, etc.) for The Ottawa Mission.

We will also be selling raffle tickets at the luncheon, with all the proceeds going to The Ottawa Mission.

As mentioned before, the Board of Directors is already occupied with preliminary work for the Canadian Risk Management Conference to take place in Ottawa in 2020. The conference location and hotels are being booked as we speak, and soon we will be looking for volunteers in the New Year to take on some of the important work that will make the conference successful.

 Hopefully we will see you at the upcoming luncheon.
