Introducing CAPS 2017 Board of Directors

As we close 2016, I wish to express my thanks for the CAPS “family” who have supported our association this past ydale-choquette-2ear.  Members, speakers, advisors, advocates, Directors and colleagues, thank you for making a difference.

I am so grateful for the knowledge, experience and commitment shown by our 2016 Board Members.  Serving in their roles as Treasurer, Program Chair and Marketing and Communications has strengthened the CAPS vision and inspired the new Board.  Thank you, Kindi Gill, Phil Eastwood and David Greer.

As the year closed, our membership grew by 10!  Welcome new members, Elaine Allison, Scott Armstrong, Beth Hanishewski, JoAnne Marlow, Jivi Cheema, Denise Wozniak, Paul Pelletier, Karen McGregor, David Beaudoin, Lowry Olafson and Mark Jennings-Bates.

I’m proud to introduce the new Board of Directors for 2017.
