CCI North Alberta has been busy over the fall with our recent Annual General Meeting and National CCI
Conference held in London, Ontario.

Our Annual General Meeting held on October 2, 2018 was our largest in recent history with nearly 200
attendees. At this meeting we elected a new Board of Directors, formally recognized our many
volunteers who help our organization run throughout the year, and we held a legal panel session
featuring lawyers Todd Shipley, Natasha Sutherland, and Robert Noce. Many thanks to these lawyers for
volunteering their time and efforts to help answer questions from the condominium community.

I would like to thank two individuals who are voluntarily stepping away from their role on our Board.
Rafal Dyrda has moved to Kelowna but remains active both in our chapter and at the national level of
CCI. Rafal worked very hard to re-vamp our old website, and improve our communication to our
members. Without his assistance, we would not have progressed as much as we have over the past 8
years. Trinity Player is unfortunately leaving the industry to pursue other interests. Besides her work on
the Board, Trinity has served as the Committee Chair for the past two years of our very successful Golf
Mixer. Her energy and enthusiasm will be missed.

I would like to welcome to the Board, Brian Shedden who is with Entuitive Engineering. Brian comes to
us by way of CCI South Alberta, and was a very active member of that Chapter for many years. He
recently moved up to Edmonton and we jumped at the opportunity to have bring his expertise to our
Chapter. He will be heading up the Communications Committee, and we are excited to have him lead us!
I encourage everyone who has not had an opportunity to check our new website to do so, it was an incredible labour of love by our staff and we are excited
about what this new platform will allow CCI North Alberta to do for our membership. It will be the focal
point of information as we prepare our membership for all the upcoming changes in the regulation.

I encourage you to reach out to as many people as possible to consider joining our condominium
community especially as we enter this critical period of substantial changes in the legislation. We now
offer half year memberships (valid until June 30, 2019) to any new members. Details and application
forms can be found on our website. Members who refer new applicants will be eligible for a $50
Ambassador credit that can be used for various CCI events, membership fees or advertising.
On behalf of CCI North Alberta, wishing you a safe and joyous holiday season!
