The Arctic Chapter is now in its fifth year of existence in the North. As it has been the case since the beginning, most of our membership is based in the Northwest Territories, but we are proud to have branched out to include Nunavut in the past year. We are currently in campaign mode, contacting potential members in the Yukon. If you're reading this from the Yukon, contact us; we'd love to answer any questions you have and welcome you on board.
Coming up in the next couple of weeks, we'll be holding our annual general meeting. Due to the vast territory we cover and the huge distances between us, we have decided this year to hold out meeting through IM using Skype – is it a first for the GDC? We're not sure, but hey, you have to do what you have to do. For those members participating in the meeting, we will be contacting you soon with information about the time and "place" and other particulars.
For a number of years now, the Arctic Chapter has been sponsored by Coast Paper out of Edmonton so we'd like to thank Coast for their continued support and look forward to working with them in the future.
Congratulations are also in order to GDC national and Tétro Design for coming through with a great new site. We're looking forward to the new features and easy access to chapter news.
Here's to another great year!
