On September 21, 2015 PCL hosted our 26th Annual General Meeting at Emmanuel Village. Our guest speaker this year was Jamie Burton, Vice-President of Dolphin Digital Technologies, a tech company in KW that is known internationally for its innovative use of technology and creation of barrier-free employment strategies. Her speech at the AGM was visionary and passionate, laying out the many ways in which we can eliminate the bias and prejudice that surround disabled people in the job market which prevents them from acquiring the jobs they are more than capable of doing.
Members voted on changes to By-Law #8, which revised the standing committees of the Board. President Tim Flannery and Executive Director Kathy Loveys presented their annual reports and informed the participants about the important and exciting changes PCL is going through as we grow in both size and service within our community. We are looking forward to another year of growth and development, supporting the individuals in our care with excellence, and finding meaningful community connections to enhance quality of life.
Please see our Annual Report 2014-15 for details on the activities of the organization.
