The Bright Future of CEF

CEF is 12 years old and at our AGM recently, we brought on five new Board members. Five folks, from a variety of walks of life, so captivated by our mission and our work that they put up their hand and said “sure, I’ll volunteer to help in whatever way you need me." And need them we do. CEF is getting more complex and involved in so many things that we need these dynamic, skilled people. So thank you to them, to all 16 Board members and a special shout out to all of the former Board members who still keep us in their hearts. You know who you are.
