Presidential highlights from the 2014 conference and AGM in Ottawa

This past weekend, 30 AEBC members -- some of them new members, some of them recent members, some of them members from 20 years ago -- gathered in Ottawa for the 2014 conference and annual general meeting.  In this blog post, I will touch on some of the highlights of the conference, for those who were not in attendance and who were not listening to the live stream.  (We had as many as 20 listeners to the stream, a record since we began offering this service a few years ago.) 

Good things come in small packages

The best things in the world really do come in small packages. I am participating in a volunteer project in London over a number of Monday afternoons. I wake up early Monday mornings. Hope and I leave the house at 6:15 and walk to our Via “shelter”. We don’t have a train station in Strathroy, we have a shelter much like the public transit shelters in most Canadian cities. The train leaves Strathroy at 6:43 and arrives in London shortly after 7:00 am. We walk to the bus stop and catch the city bus to a stop a few blocks from my daughter’s house. A quick text to my daughter to let her know I am walking the last few blocks and Hope finds her way to the front door and the arms of my 2 year old grand daughter.
