CNNC is delighted to welcome a new communications officer to the Leadership Team. Mike Rumble was previously involved with CanSouth back in the heyday and wants to get back into volunteering. He will be taking over communications duties and keeping our network informed in myriad ways. We look forward to working with him.
CNNC is still looking for volunteers interested in serving as President or 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.
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.

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
UPDATE: We have just been informed by the artist that Saturday’s show in Durham was cancelled by the presenter without notice. Apologies for any inconvenience.
The Canadian Network of North Carolina now has its own social media outlets and all CanSouth and CBA-NC accounts will be closed.
We have a new Facebook page, a public profile where we post CNNC news and upcoming events as well as other Canadian content. Canadians and other who like Canada are invited to follow us. If you haven’t transferred over, look for Canadian Network of NC on Facebook.
In the recent member survey, 70% of respondents expressed the desire for a private discussion board. The Canadian Network of NC has thus created a closed moderated Facebook group as an extension of the public Facebook page. It is a place to talk with fellow Canadians living in NC and ask questions about immigration, taxes, US banking, healthcare and personal experiences. This page is restricted to Canadians living in NC and there will be three questions to answer to join. You will be accepted within 24 hours.
We also have a new LinkedIn group, under the name Canadian Network of North Carolina (CNNC). Select the option that says ‘group’ because a business page was inadvertently created and is still available even though it was deleted. Our LinkedIn page is for Canadians living and/or working in North Carolina.
If not on social media, Canadians living in NC can sign up for our mailing list—which is our de facto member list—to keep up with news and networking events. Join the CNNC and our mailing list by sending us an email via the Contact Us page of our website.
You can also receive email notifications each time we post to our blog. Anybody can follow us; simply click the Follow button on http://www.canadiannetworknc.com and enter your email address.
We’re very grateful that you’ve stuck with us during the merger process. We invite you to join our new outlets if you haven’t already done so and we hope to see you soon at a networking event!
