CNNC President Caroline Rocheleau stepped down on January 20. Rocheleau had been heading the leadership team of Canadian Network of North Carolina since its formation through the merger of CanSouth and the Canadian Business Association of North Carolina in summer of 2017.
She is succeeded by Susana Almeida-Peters, who has been CNNC’s social media coordinator since December 2017. Upon accepting the presidency, Almeida-Peters said, “Being new to Raleigh in 2017, it made my husband and I happy to have found the CNNC. We were excited to join and talk to and mingle with fellow Canadians. It made us feel like we were not alone here. It also provided some comfort knowing we have a little bit of Canada in Raleigh! It’s important to have this group in The Triangle so other Canadians new to the area have that support as well!”
Thank you to Caroline for her dedicated years of service and best wishes to Susana as she takes on this new leadership role.
