CNNC has a new president

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.

Leadership team seeking communications officer

We are looking for an enthusiastic Canadian who is interested in helping CNNC keep in touch with its members in The Triangle and across the state.

The CNNC communications officer will respond to CNNC email as well as compose and send newsletters using Mail Chimp. The communications officer is considered a full member of the CNNC Leadership Team and will work closely with the president, events coordinator and social media coordinator to promote various activities and share information with the membership.

The best candidate will work well both independently and as part of team, will contribute to discussions, meet deadlines, and respond quickly to emails, will feel comfortable asking questions and seeking guidance from other team members, and will attend the rare CNNC meetings. They will also have enough volunteer time to devote to the various tasks required of the communications officer (time varies based on the number of emails received and when a newsletter is required). Familiarity with various online communication tools and excellent written communications skills are required.

Interested Canadians should send the CNNC Leadership Team an email introducing themselves and describing the skills and interests they possess to successfully get the CNNC message out to Canadians in North Carolina.
