It is always nice to see as many members as possible come out to chapter meetings. With the meeting season wrapping up, it was wonderful to see so many participants at these season-ending chapter meetings.

Durham chapter had its Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) meeting on Mar. 3, at the Holiday Inn. There were many members in attendance for this one. In fact, we should have booked a bigger room.  
On a side note, we would also like to thank the outgoing president Brian Marsh for all of his hard work and dedication to the chapter.

I then travelled to Napanee to visit the Upper Canada chapter during its annual MTO meeting. Once again, we had a great turnout of members and it was nice to see all the new faces. The Upper Canada chapter continues to grow and it is an exciting time to be a part of the group.

The final meeting for the week was the Golden Horseshoe chapter’s meeting concerning the MTO. Held at Connons NVK in Dundas, the chapter welcomed ministry officials who provided an onsite inspection.

Special thanks go to Connons NVK for providing the chapter with meeting space, plus a special thanks to all of the staff for their hospitality and shuttle service.

We would like to also thank all of the new board members who have become involved with their chapters.
