With the AGM fast approaching, as an Executive, we are encouraging as many of our current members as possible to attend the meeting. The ISSS is very active these days and require dedicated and motivated members for it to be successful. The Executive is reaching out to the 2017 membership to consider putting their name forward to fill one of the many volunteer Executive positions available at the AGM. It takes much effort and team work to keep the ISSS going. An Executive that is dedicated, works as a team and have the interest of the membership, will ensure a strong ISSS.
Please feel free to contact any current Executive member regarding a position. You can also contact one of the Trustees to put your name forward for a position. Many hands make lighter work.
