President’s Message

Greetings Sisters, Brothers & Friends:

First off, I want to let everyone know that I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the COPE Executive for the past seven years.  I have grown from my role an RVP, to National Vice-President and then President for the past 2 ½ years.  Although at times these positions can be challenging, I always felt that this was what I was meant to do.  We have a great team of COPE staff across Canada, and I was happy to be able to represent you all.  I would also like to say that I have had the opportunity to work with a terrific Executive Board that were very supportive during my role as President.

With that said, I am writing to inform you that effective immediately, I will be stepping down.  As the National Vice-President, Brandi Kehoe has been Acting in this role for the past two months, she will continue to support all members in this role until the elections for President take place in December.

This was a tough decision for me as I feel my place is always going to be with COPE. Currently, my life has taken another direction which my entire focus needs to be on, and in fairness to the COPE members and Executive, I believe this is the right decision.

I thank you all for your support during my time as President.

Take care!In solidarity,

Trish Sinclair
