President’s Message for March and April 2019

Dear Members,

We’ve made it through the worst of winter and if you’re like me, are looking forward to the arrival of Spring.

March is the month of International Women’s Day and quite aptly, the Guest Speaker at our General Meeting on 28th March will be Noëlla Coursaris Musunka. Noëlla is a model, philanthropist, entrepreneur and mother and is passionate about improving the lives of African children through education. Noëlla was named as one of the most influential women in the world.

As the Amabassador for The Global Fund to fight AIDS,Tuberculosis and Malaria, the world’s largest financier of programs combating these diseases through partnership between governments, civil society and the private sector. Supported by Bill and Melinda Gates and Kofi Annan, along with other experts in the field, The Global Fund has disbursed $35 billion to countries and communities in need. We all look forward to welcoming Noëlla and hearing about how she continues her philanthropic ways for African children and how she tries to help improve their lives.

By now you will have received an email and/or letter inviting you to vote, via electronic means, on the recently proposed revisions to the kcwc By-Laws and new Code of Conduct. Please take the time to vote, your opinion matters to our club. If you haven’t received either email nor letter, please contact Sara Safaei on without delay.

This year’s Nominating Committee has started its task of recruiting Members to fill any empty Board positions for 2019-2020. Do get in touch to propose fellow Members you feel would be a valuable addition to our Board by sending an email to Nada Pavlak on .

I take this opportunity to thank, once again, my hard working fellow Board Members and all our amazing Activity Leaders and volunteers who make this club and all their activities so interesting and successful.

Sincerely, Theresa Klassen
