Welcome to the Ottawa Valley Branch of the National Association of Federal Retirees.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the branch has not been able to hold an annual general meeting. We want to restart activities, offer value to you as our member and solidify the branch’s future. The first step is to fill a minimum of four vacancies on the branch executive to form a team of committed volunteers who will engage the branch’s membership and help the Association achieve its advocacy goals.
- Be advised that the branch will hold its 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. in the Bob Rintoul Hall at the Carleton Place Arena (2nd floor), 75 Neelin Street, Carleton Place, ON K7C 2V8.
Light refreshments will be served.
The National Vice President Hélène Nadeau will be present to give an update on the Association’s priorities and actions.

- The main purpose of this meeting is to review the branch’s financials and elect directors to fill the vacant positions on the branch executive. We need candidates who may also be interested in holding officer positions such as President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Director positions are for a two-year term. As the Branch by-laws do not allow nominations from the floor, members who would like to throw their hats in the ring are asked to email their interest by Oct. 9, 2023, to Lionel Raymond, at email@example.com.
A minimum number of members (quorum) are required to conduct business at this most important meeting, so please make every effort to be present and consider running for office. Branch members planning to attend the AGM should click here to register no later than Monday, Oct. 18, 2023. Some refreshments will be served, so we need to know the number of attendees in advance to ensure how much to order.
