Introducing the 2017/18 Board of Directors!
During the weekend of June 2-4, the Craft Council Board, Staff, members, and partners gathered in the beautiful historic town of Bonavista for a Strategic Planning Session, and our Annual General Meeting.
The planning sessions were extremely productive and valuable, and we look forward to seeing the final product so we can move forward with the support and development of our organization and industry. Many thanks to everyone who helped to make these sessions happen. Marilyn Butland of Butland Communications for planning and facilitating the sessions, all of the moderators, and of course Katie and Morgaine Parnham for keeping us all well fed!
During the AGM, the 2017/18 Board of Directors change was announced. We thank everyone who volunteered last year on the board, especially our now Past-Chair, Frances Ennis, who led the AGM.
