Office of the President

SEPTEMBER 03, 2017

Please be informed that our monthly meeting will take place, as scheduled on Monday September the 11th, 6:00 pm at Committee room N# 2, second floor at Toronto City Hall. Details of the business of the day are on the attached agenda. As we have scheduled our two day seminar for Saturday and Sunday 23 and 24 of September, I requested time and again to have the names of the members planning to attend. As of today, only 6 members resister as attendees. This is a very important session as high ranking officials from the Department of Canadian Heritage, will be attending in order to explain to all of you how to apply successfully for funds for your publication. Probably this is going to be the last time you will have the ability to hear directly and ask questions pertaining your interests.
In any way, though, I cannot accept that the government is spending money to send civil servants to Toronto, only for 6 persons. To this extend, and if by the 11th of September 2017, day of our monthly meeting, I do not receive assurances that at least 60 members are attending, I have to call off the meeting. During the two days tenure the organization will provide to attendees food, coffee and beverages as well as cookies. It is a very expensing project for which we do not received any financial support by anyone. It is therefore that the Treasury of our organization will cover the expenses, something that we have to satisfy by the number of the attendees, or I have to call off this special and very important meeting. After this event I will refuse to help anyone feel his application in the coming October for the resent year, as he/she is not showing any interest to learn about the funds.
Thank you,
Thomas S. Saras---Maria Voutsinas----Neel Nanda----Srimal Abeyewardene-----Mohammad Tajdolati 
President and CEO----Executive Director--Secretary General-----Treasurer------Chair of the Assembly.
