A busy day on tap at HCF with our jam packed first Board meeting of the fall, under the capable watch of our new board Chair, Dr. Gary Warner. We welcome an outstanding group of new board members including Mac President Dr. Patrick Deane, Lawyer and community volunteer extraordinaire Brent Foreman and dynamic young entrepreneur Paul Lee Chin.
Immediately after the Board meeting I will dash to Hamilton Airport for a flight to Winnipeg. I am presenting there, along with some outstanding speakers from the U.K., U.S.A. and Canada, at the Philanthropy, Law and Social Enterprise Conference hosted by my friend and mentor Rick Frost of the Winnipeg Community Foundation. The audience will be predominately law students as well as community foundation partners and I always enjoy the opportunity to speak to the leaders of tomorrow about the power of philanthropy and some of exciting and innovative work that our team is doing at HCF.
