CuriousWorks would like to extend a warm welcome to the newest members of our Management Committee (pictured from left to right): Tiffany Lee-Shoy, Julie Kalceff and Amy Noble. All three members were officially inducted at CuriousWorks Annual General Meeting this year.
At this same AGM, we also bid farewell to two of our board members: Rachel Kerry and Sorrel Palmer. Sorrel had only been on the board for a year, but her work and dedication across the year cannot be understated. Rachel had acted as our Public Officer and part of our Fundraising Committee, and had been on the board for an astonishing eight (8!) years. While they are no longer officially part of CuriousWorks MC, they will always be friends of CuriousWorks, and we wish them the best!
Our Annual General Meeting this year was obviously very different from previous meetings, and had to be conducted entirely over Zoom. In any other year, we would have loved to have a celebratory dinner and properly welcome/farewell our wonderful members. We hope we can make time to do so belatedly when it’s safe for all of us to meet again.
We’ll be sharing info about our new members below, but you can read their complete bios (and the biographies of the whole CuriousWorks Management Committee) here.
