Last August, anticipating that 2017-2018 work obligations would impede continuation of effective leadership for the Ontario Fencing Veterans Committee, Rob McLean communicated to the OFA Board his intention to step down as chair while remaining a member of the committee.
Subsequently, Vera Belaoussoff and Ann Jolly agreed to become co-chairs of the committee. We look forward to an invigorated committee under their leadership.
In addition to Vera and Ann, committee members include Kyle Foster, Dan Gervais, Rob McLean, and Gaby Weisz as liaison with the CFF Veteran Committee. Maxime Brinck-Croteau continues to provide excellent staff support in helping to move committee priorities toward implementation. Ann and Vera look forward to continuing implementing the mandate of the OFA Veteran Committee, to communicate, support, and grow the Veteran Fencing Community in Ontario.
