The 2019 Vasculitis Foundation Canada (VFC) AGM will be held on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at The Marketplace (in the kitchen), Kitchener Market, Kitchener, Ontario 300 King Street East, Kitchener, Ontario.
The VFC AGM is the foundation’s annual obligation to, amongst other things, receive the Directors’/President’s report on the current and future business of the foundation, receive the Treasurer’s report and financial statements for the 2018 calendar year, receive the auditor’s report and appoint auditors for the new year. Members also vote to elect officers (President, Treasurer and Secretary) and directors for the new year as well as transact any other business that may properly come before the meeting.
The AGM starts at 1:30PM, however, arrival and registration runs between 10:30 AM and 11:15 AM with a healthy cooking demo from 11:15 AM until 12:30 PM. Lunch, made during the cooking demo, runs from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM with a repeat presentation by June Martin, Registered Dietician, after her in-person 2018 AGM presentation had to be cancelled due to the mid-April ice storm! Don’t miss it! Remember, memberships must be current to vote!
June Martin has been a registered dietitian for 19 years and has always been interested in how different diseases are affected by what we eat. She works at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener as part of the regional renal program for patients with kidney disease. In addition to the usual patient education, she has participated in chef-led practical cooking demonstrations, developed innovative kidney-friendly cookbooks and collaborated nationally on a patient focused national nutrition website. Most of her patients are dealing with more than one diet. They may already be following a cardiac, diabetic or celiac diet as well! One thing she loves about her work is that there is no standard diet – everyone is different – so it’s never boring!
