Updates From The General Secretary – March 2015

, March 17, 2015

– by Arie van Ameriungen The Annual General Meeting in Toronto The annual conference of the Society will take place from May 17th to 19th with the theme And the Darkness Becomes Light.

– by Judy King Dear Friends, Mark McAlister is stepping out of the role of Administrator of the Anthroposophical Society in Canada. He has carried the work of membership and communications administration for seven years, and will pass this role to new hands at the end of March (2015). Council members wish to take an opportunity to show our gratitude, respect and appreciation to Mark for the lively dedication he has brought to the task. In 2008, with an acknowledgement from Council that help was needed with administrative work, the decision was made to hire someone who would be in charge of keeping membership records and communication with members, including publication of Glimpses.
