OTCA News Release (2019/05/10)

posted May 27, 2019, 3:02 AM by bing wen

Dear OTCA members and Masters,

I wanted to pass along members? impressions of the student performances at this year?s AGM. The general consensus was that the performances were amazing, and everyone looked great in their OTCA t-shirts. I had the same reaction. I think that the level of our collective tai chi and chi kung practice has improved by leaps and bounds, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our Masters and the diligence of all of our members.

I also think it shows that we have a strong organization, given the challenge we faced this year with regard to practice space.

I'd like to thank Albert Lau and Eric Audet for picking up the buns, Marc for the photography, and everyone for their help with the AGM set-up and clean-up, which was particularly efficient!

I'd also like to thank Frank Lau for his work as Chair in 2018-19, and all of the OTCA executive for their time and effort over the past year to make our organization run so successfully.

Welcome to the 2019-20 Board:

Chair: Michael Fitzgerald
Vice Chair: Masako Lovatt and Frank Lau
Treasurer: Vishnu Jadoonath
Secretary: Pat Lam
PR Chinese to newspapers & members: Frank Lau and Amy Wong
Membership Coordinator: Tracy Ng
Membership committee: Jim Wong, Lori Rosove, Amy Wong, Winnie Tang
PDC: Pat Lam (TBA), Marc Carriere (CUS)
Library: Winnie Tang
Social Coordinator: Agnes Mah
Social Committee: Pat Lam, Wendy Trudell, Michael Fitzgerald
Web: Bing Wen

I look forward to seeing you all at the BBQ in June to celebrate our successful year, and to many more to come.

Best wishes,

Michael Fitzgerald
Chair, OTCA
