Introducing the First Vice President: Just a short back story: When I retired in 2009, Bill Purnis, the incoming President of District 3, Algoma, asked me to be on the RTO executive as the Secretary. For the past six years I have become familiar with our District, the wonderful executive and our membership. Our members, in District 3, Algoma, believe in volunteerism within our community, and in caring and sharing their skills, talents and passions. We have successfully supported “Service To Others” projects locally and internationally. Our Silent Auction, at the Annual General meeting, generates the funds for our scholarships to Sault College and Algoma University through the contributions of our members, their successful bids and generous donations. Reflections on my new role: As the District 3, Algoma, Vice-President, I have had the opportunity to participate in our Provincial organization. I attended a meeting this Spring that examined the proposed new Governance model. Input was given by not only the provincial executive, but also presidents and representatives from each district. We were indeed fortunate to have four representatives from Algoma, Rich Prophet, Gayle Manley, Harry Houston and myself. Suggestions regarding priorities were given in brain-storming sessions and conversations both in session and in informal meetings. Feedback summaries were then sent to us so that we would be prepared for some of the motions at the Spring Senate. As a newbie, I found the Spring Senate very interesting. We are indeed fortunate to have members from all our districts, large and small, rural and urban, from across Ontario and British Columbia, with the common motivation to make RTO/ERO a vital, forward thinking organization that meets the needs of current and future members. The Senate was not without its controversy and passionate debate both pro and con on several motions. I must admit there were many familiar names and faces, that had in a past life, represented former federations. I look forward to our exciting year in District 3, and the activities to celebrate RTO/ERO's 50th Anniversary. I also look forward to the Fall Senate and the opportunity to be part of the determination of the future of RTO/ERO. Kathryn Greening
