District 10 Director's Report for 2016/17, Presented at the Aylmer AGM, April 2017


What a year it has been!

We kicked things off at the AGM hosted by Belmont and Area Horticultural Society. Organizers did an exceptional job and proved that you can have a great AGM in a smaller market venue. At the AGM we welcomed Joyce Schlegal  into the role as A/Director for Middlesex and Dona Birtwistle as secretary.

I really enjoyed the OHA Convention, which was hosted by District 19 in Kitchener Waterloo. During the convention I was named publication competition chair, so if you have any bookmarks, flyers, newsletter or other promotional material that you’d like to enter into this years OHA convention competition, send it to me before May 1, 2017!

A fall workshop was held in Woodstock and focused on society roles and responsibilities and electronic reporting to both the OHA and OHA D10.

The entire OHA D10 Board should be very proud of their accomplishments over the past year. We have released an AGM Planning Guide, which should be of use to societies when organizing and AGM. We did branding work, including a logo, motto, letterhead, and a stand-up banner. Information pamphlets have also been released using our logo and motto. We managed to get AGM information to societies early this year, including an agenda. We continue to encourage the electronic submission of documents in advance of the AGM such that it can be shared with all OHA D10 Societies.  Finally, the board took a big step in trying something new by registering in partnership with the OHA for the Go Wild Grow Wild event held April 8, 2017.

What a year!

Respectfully submitted,

Stephen Douglas
