Presented to the 99th Annual General Meeting

It was a very busy year for both the Finance committee and Finance Section at PIPSC as we helped produce the budget and financial statements.

We have also examined a few policies in the institute and submitted recommendations to the Board. Also we discussed various financial issues that arose during the year and suggested solutions.

I have enjoyed the work we have done and the great people I have worked with this year. The members of the committee are:

Marilyn Best – Atlantic Region

Sharon Loisinski – Prairie/NWT Region

Adèle McLean –BC/Yukon Region

Benoit Pelletier – Québec Region 

Paul Jones – National Capital Region

Tom Yantsis – Ontario Region

And our friends:           

Deborah Butler – Ontario Region

Del Dickson – National Capital Region

Giovanni Giolti – Québec Region 

Tom Iwinski – National Capital Region

Robert Trudeau – Prairie/NWT Region

I would also like to thank the staff resources Dennis Britt, Didier Paultre and Cassandre Becker for their help and support this year: It has been a great year and I am hoping to continue working with committee in the years to come.

In addition, I would like to specifically recognize Del Dickson’s contribution to the Finance Committee over the years. He has been a driving force not just as Chair, member and friend of this committee but also throughout PIPSC and our various entities. He gave me the confidence to be chair of this committee and he was my greatest asset when dealing with all the challenges I faced in that role.  Thank you Del for your years of service to PIPSC.

In Solidarity,

Sean O’Reilly
Finance Committee Chair
