1 56th Annual General Meeting & Convention

2 Chair s Message 2 Carol and I are like totally psyched that you are here at the 56 th Annual RMCAO AGM & Convention here at The Rosseau in choice Muskoka. Who can t relate to an 80 s party? Who doesn t recall becoming a couch potato on Thursday Night for Family Feud? Dudes and Valley Girls jam on Friday night in their best neon spandex and Ray-Bans, then a totally mega rad Chair s Gala Dinner on Saturday. This weekend promises never to be lame, you will never want to book! Leslie McCormack and Pat Solomon and their entire Committee need to be thanked for such a sweet program. Loads of stuff to do and still some time to chill and check out the crib called Rosseau. Seriously, thank you for coming to the convention and lending your support to the RMCAO. We are all blessed to work in such a great industry because it is filled with such great people. At some point during this busy weekend, do reach out to us or any committee member and let us know what you think of the AGM, or the Association in general. Do we want to hear from you? Damn Skippy! Carol & Andy Wallgren Fisher Wavy Inc. RMCAO Chair, 2014/2015
