2017 Highlights


Annual General Meeting: We thank Ed Winter (2012 to 2016) and Pat Nugent (2016), who had resigned from the board of directors, for their time and effort on the board.

We had four individuals let their names stand for a three year term on the OTS Board:

  • Trevor Barker with Cameron, a Schlumberger Company, a member for 14 years
  • Cole Needham with Horizon North Camps & Catering, a member for 6 years
  • Gil Benoit with go-led.ca, a member for 19 years
  • Michael Melnick with MHK Insurance Inc., a member for 7 years

Since there were no nominations from the Floor and since the Board was looking at filling four (4) spots, all the nominated were elected to the board.
