I want to thank each and every one of you who took the time to fill out our CCA membership survey. Roughly 25% of CCA members took part – an astounding number! The Board of Directors sincerely appreciates your input and looks forward to analyzing the results in detail. As we move forward with strategic planning for our association, having such valuable feedback on hand will be of great help. The board will be spending a significant amount of our upcoming meeting looking at ways to better meet the needs of our members.
We are pleased to announce that the CCA’s Manitoba Chapter is hosting the Gluten-Free Information Forum on June 6, 2015. The CCA is going to add our annual general meeting and meeting with chapter leaders around the forum. World-renowned celiac disease researcher Dr. Stefano Guandalini of the University of Chicago will be speaking and he will be joined by numerous other expert speakers. There will also be a large gluten-free food exhibition. For full information, check the Manitoba Chapter website Early Bird registration for members is available for $75.00 until April 15th.
Finally, here is a friendly reminder that the CCA is looking for new members to serve on our volunteer board of directors for the year starting July 1, 2015. If you have experience in governance, awareness, education, or advocacy, and believe strongly in the mission and vision of the CCA, we would love to hear from you! If interested, please contact the CCA board secretary.
Although this wish comes a bit late, I hope that 2015 will be a great year for the CCA and for you and your family!
