To enhance communication with members, we are in the process of launching a new website, as well as streamlining office emails to a central account this will help ensure that our office is able to respond diligently to membership inquires, in the most effective way possible.. During the transition to a new website, you might notice that some content is missing, and that the user portal has been modified, please excuse these inconveniences.. A Letter from the President.. September 28, 2013.. At the upcoming Annual General Meeting I will step aside from the role of President of the OACYC.. I will remain on the board in the capacity of Past-President.. I will focus all of my energy on moving towards professional regulation, and fostering and improving the political relationships that are necessary to achieve this goal.. We in the OACYC have been pushing membership with a lot of enthusiasm over the last year, as we believe that a strong membership base will provide more clout when dealing with the political process.. Our numbers are much stronger now.. I believe strongly that this goal is attainable.. In many of conversations that I have had over the last year I have spoken about the benefits to us, to our  ...   and youth --we will be protecting them from unqualified, unaccountable workers.. It has been my great pleasure and honour serving as the President of the OACYC, and I thank all those who have offered support, and challenged me to do better.. Finally on a sad note, a former colleague of mine at Thistletown, Irma Morgan recently passed away after a battle to cancer.. When I started at T-Town in 1992 in House 22 Irma was a well-seasoned front line CYW.. I was a young eager CYW, with so much to learn.. She challenged me on so many levels personally, both professional and personally, and I am a better CYW and person because I met her.. She had a remarkable calming effect on all those around her (both staff and clients), and was one of the most clinically minded front line CYW s I have had the privilege of working beside.. The incredible thing about Irma was that when she retired from T-Town in 2002 or so, she did so having worked front line for over 30 years.. Very quietly, unassuming without much fanfare delivering quality care to the young people she so genuinely cared for.. She will be sadly missed.. ~Keith Lindsay.. Member Login.. Username:..
