AGM and Annual Membership Renewal

NCC CEO Marie Lemay to be Guest Speaker

26 September 2009

Dear Friends of the Greenspace Alliance Members,

It’s that time of the year. Fall is in the air and our Annual General Meeting will be held on October 15th, 2009. Your yearly membership renewal can be made by mail or in person at the Annual General Meeting.

The AGM will be held at City Hall, the Champlain room at 7:00 pm. We hope that you will join us to renew your membership, celebrate our accomplishments and welcome Ms Marie Lemay, Chief Executive Officer of the National Capital Commission, as our Guest Speaker.

Marie Lemay became chief executive officer (CEO) of the National Capital Commission (NCC) in January 2008, the first to occupy this position since the role of chair and CEO was split into two positions. As CEO, Ms. Lemay is responsible for ensuring that the NCC fulfills its mandate. She also serves as the NCC’s principal spokesperson, and is poised to lead the organization into a new era of effective community partnership within Canada’s Capital. Ms. Lemay is a professional engineer: she graduated from the University of Ottawa (1983), is a member of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec (OIQ) and Professional Engineers Ontario, and a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering. As an engineer, she served the City of Gatineau (1986 to 1995), first as a project manager involved in infrastructure and new city developments, and later as chief of the project development division. Ms. Lemay also worked for the Municipality of Chelsea (1995 to 2000), initially as director of technical services and subsequently as director general. (More in the attachment.)

We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you on October 15th!
Thanking you in advance,
