New management

Following discussions between the new Board of Directors and the Federation's Executive Director, Gilles Nadon, the parties agreed on the need for a change in the Executive Director to prioritize a new vision for the Federation.

To ensure smooth operations until a new Executive Director is hired in August, the Board chose to build on the Federation's internal strengths.

Elimane Sy, Management Support Coordinator, will serve as interim Director. He will be assisted by Philippe Leclerc, who is responsible for support requests and training, and Richard Audet. Richard Audet will oversee communications and associative life as part of a transitional mandate.

The trio will work closely together to operationalize the interim under the supervision of the Executive Committee. The interim director and the two managers have the mandate to initiate the change of vision carried by the board of directors.
