CNNC has a new treasurer

The Leadership Team is delighted to welcome Nathan as the new CNNC Treasurer.  Nathan is taking over the post previously held by Denise, who moved back to Canada.  Denise served as Treasurer for both CanSouth and the Canadian Network of North Carolina.  We wish her well and we look forward to working with Nathan.

We also have new members at large! Alan and Paul have indicated that they can help with events whenever CNNC’s post-pandemic social schedule resumes.

CNNC is still looking for volunteers interested in serving as President, Communications Officer, and Webmaster to replace these outgoing Leadership Team members.  As with any volunteer social organization, the time commitment and the number of events is based on what the team can dedicate to the group.  If you are interested in these positions, please contact us.

Seeking New Leadership

Dear CNNC community,

As many know, the Canadian Network of North Carolina strives to provide access to information pertinent to Canadians living and working in North Carolina and offer the expat community various social and professional networking opportunities.

A staple of the Canadian expat community in North Carolina for over a decade, CNNC (formerly CanSouth and CBA-NC) is entirely led by a team of volunteer Canadians.

Regrettably, as happens from time to time due to increasing time commitments on our leadership teams, we are reaching out to you for new leadership.

CNNC is seeking a few motivated individuals willing to take on leadership roles.

Along with our website and Facebook presence, duties center primarily around organizing the annual Canada Day get-together, the Carolina Hurricanes annual hockey deal, and if interested, the Canada cultural booth at the Raleigh International Festival.

With helpful transition guidance from the current leadership team, taking on organizing responsibilities needs but a few enthusiastic Canadians willing to share duties.

Interested Canadians are encouraged to contact us!

It has been a pleasure stewarding CNNC for our greater community over the past few years. We’re looking forward to its bright future under new leaders. Thank you so much for your support and interest.

Susana, Caroline, Dominique
The outgoing leadership team

Canada Day CNNC Celebration Cancelled for 2020

Every year we look forward to connecting with our fellow expats to celebrate Canada Day. The event is a highlight of CNNC’s social activities, and one we hold dear as Canadians away from home.

Sadly, in light of COVID-19 and the continued need to socially distance ourselves to minimize its spread and protect the most vulnerable in our communities, the CNNC leadership team has decided to cancel this year’s Canada Day event.

Helping our communities stay informed and connected is core to this volunteer organization. We will continue to do so when able, only without any planned in-person gatherings for the foreseeable future.

Everyone’s fingers are crossed that we will all be able to celebrate Canada Day once again in true Canadian form in years to come. Until then, take care of yourselves.
