Message from the President, January 2013

The CMAO is happy and excited to present our nomination process (see the nomination process article). We hope all members and non-members will get the word out and help stimulate the nominations. Any member or non-member could submit a nomination, but the ultimate selection of the finalists will be in the hands of all voting CMAO members (those who are in good standing). Make sure your dues are up to date or join our organization to be eligible to be part of making history! If there are any questions related to the nomination process, please submit them to and someone will respond to your email.

I would like to welcome Stephanie Brooks aboard the newsletter team. Stephanie holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Carleton University. Be on the lookout for her article each month; I’m personally looking forward to them.

We are also featuring Peter Linseman as the Behind the Board profile for this month. Peter is on his second stint with the CMAO and will be taking the lead role in planning and putting together some great Open Mics, starting in 2013.

We are looking forward to great strides this year both for the CMAO and all of its membership.

Happy 2013!

Sam Arraj
President, CMAO
