WOR Annual General Meeting
"Women on the Rise held our AGM on June 18th at St Thomas Church and were happy to see so many residents and mothers come out. Chaired by Renate Betts of Westhaven Centre, the AGM proved to be very productive, with the passing of the activity report, financial statements, and review of the upcoming year budget.
The Board of Directors election was exciting, with 8 candidates running for 4 positions. The team would like to thank all of the outgoing volunteers and those who ran for the election this year. We encourage you to stay in touch!
The new Board members elected are: Jing Bai, Nikki Mike, Catherine Oliver and Dina Souleiman. Highlights of the AGM include several heartfelt testimonials from mothers at Women on the Rise, including from Naomi who shared that she has enjoyed being a participant so much that she wanted to give back. She received a grant from Tenaquip to run an Art Therapy project at Women on the Rise which has been a hit with the moms.
As we look ahead to the 2019-2020 year, we have set an ambitious goal of $55,000 for fundraising on a budget of $175,500. We look to our community for support in making this year a success!
