Sisters and Brothers: Sister Karen Carle has advised COPE491 that although she has enjoyed working as President and on behalf of the members, the time has come that she has decided to resign. Karen has been a wealth of knowledge and a strong activist for our members and will be missed! We wish Karen all the best and want to thank her for the dedication she has shown to our members. As a result of this, the election call was sent out yesterday. As this is a bi-election, this position will end December 31, 2019.
