 News and Announcements

September 7, 2011 – Calgary SSEA Late Summer Update

Executive Changes

We’ve made some changes to the executive. Janis Svilpis has stepped down as treasurer due to health problems. James Morison has moved over to the treasurer’s position and Nicholas Wernick will take over as secretary and handle communications.

The 2011 – 2012 executive is now:

President: Julius Szekrenyes
Vice President: Paul English
Executive Member: Mary Macdonald
Secretary/Communication: Nicholas Wernick
Treasurer: James Morison

Some of the executive will step down at the end of the year, so we will need to find people to take their place.

We Are Moving to a New Location

We are moving to a location this fall. We have tentatively booked room EDC 287 in the Education Block at the University of Calgary. We will provide more information later once this has been confirmed.

Please Send Your Membership Payment to the National Office

We have decided that it would be easier for the executive if members sent their membership fees directly to the national office. You can find more information at the national website: http://www.thessea.org

Please let the treasurer know that you have submitted you fees so we know who is a member.
