Hello All,

As the calendar year comes to a close, I hope you have all had a wonderful and prosperous 2017.  Our Holiday/Past Presidents' party will be taking place Tuesday, December 12th, and it sounds like Arron has planned a very fun evening.  He will be posting all of the details (or I suppose you could axe him), but I know I am looking forward to it.  For those of you that are unable to attend, we all wish you a very Happy Holidays and all the best for the New Year!.

Best Regards,

Christine Rogers

Hello All and Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. Now we are getting back into the swing of things with a brand new board of governers and some exciting events scheduled.  I am very excited that we have some new volunteers on the board and hope that they can bring some great new ideas for the year.  I'd also like to take to opportuity to thank those that have volunteered for the board.  Their time and effort is always appreciated.  That being said, we still have one position on the board open (CTTC) for anyone else who may be interested in becoming a board member, and if anyone is interested in joining as a member at large to become more familiar with the processes, they are welcome to join at the board level.

Our first meeting is on September 12th and will include a tour of Sasktel's new data centre.  I hope to see everyone there!
