Notes from our Annual Members Meeting


At yesterday’s AMM we said thank you to two out-going members and welcomed three new directors to the board.

ONBIDA President Liisa Freure, presented out-going secretary Loretta Tang with a plaque in recognition of the completion of her three-year term of service. Loretta’s efficiency, professionalism, and attention to detail were a great asset to the board over the past three years. She was a pleasure to work with and will be greatly missed, we wish her all the best in her future pursuits.

Laura Crumb served as a director for the past two years and co-chaired our 2018 Literacy and Learning Conference. Organizing the conference is a huge undertaking and Laura’s hard work and organization were pivotal to making the event a success. Laura has generously offered to share her knowledge and continue to assist the organizers of the next conference.

Thank you, Loretta and Laura,!

New directors, Veronika Overton, Stuart Lulling and Alicia Smith have all been volunteering with ONBIDA in a variety of roles and are enthusiastic to step up and join the board. Welcome aboard, Veronika, Stuart, and Alicia.

ONBIDA has lots of exciting things planned for the year to come, if you are interested in getting involved and helping out please email us at
