Presidents Message


Hello and welcome to the BHRN! I am proud to serve as president for the 2016-2017 season and I look forward to meeting all of you during my tenure.

I would like to thank past president Nadine Bellhouse and everyone on the Executive Committee for their contributions to a great 2015-2016 season. And, thank you to everyone who attended the luncheon presentations and workshops. We hope to make the 2016-2017 season just as great. To this end the executive team has done a great job to recruit presenters for luncheon topics that are relevant and worthwhile. This season will feature some new topics and presenters along with some of your favorites. Here are some of the new topics we are working on;  we will kick off the season with a very entertaining and informative presentation on DiSC- the use of personality assessment. Then, later in the season we would like to feature a Wellness Fair, an extended luncheon on Employment Law with Blair McCreadie, luncheons on Emotional Intelligence, Mental Health First Aid and a one half day workshop on…. (stay tuned).  Also, we have been very fortunate to have lined up local comedian Graham Chittenden for our Christmas luncheon. We end the season with a BBQ with a twist.

We have used your feedback to make a few changes to the luncheon set up. Starting in September, we will have registration and networking 11:30 to 11:45, we will have lunch from 11:45 to 12:15. Presentations will be from 12:15 to 1:00 pm.   Due to our higher costs for speakers we will be increasing the fee for lunch to $25. We hope that this does not inconvenience anyone.

We encourage you to give us your feedback and we want you to follow us on Linked In.

Looking forward to seeing you in September.

Thank You

Gil Martino
