I’m sure this won’t satisfy the Justin-haters, but it does appear the new board is looking seriously at other candidates for a permanent National Director.

The CFI Canada Board of Directors is pleased to inform our members that it has undertaken these initiatives following our recent first meeting:

1) We have engaged a new National Communications Director. After successfully volunteering in a similar role for the past three months, Justin Trottier has accepted a three-month contract. Working with our Branch leaders, he will be responsible for the overall planning, organization, and direction of our communication strategies. He will also be contacting donors and members, in collaboration with the National Executive Director, to solicit donations and ensure membership renewals.

2) We have formed a special committee within the Board to recommend applicants for the position of National Executive Director. The committee will be processing applications and then conducting interviews with a select number of candidates. We will announce our decision on or before April 15, 2012.

3) We have begun to budget for and start building a new CFI Canada website. This will allow all our Branches to be represented under one coherent platform. We will be calling on Branch leaders and members for suggestions in order to build a site we can all be proud of. In the meantime, we have requested that our new National Communications Director update our current site.

The Board believes these initiatives will further our goal of making CFI Canada our nation’s premier voice for reason, secularism and skepticism.
