I’m Pamela Witcher, Community Relations Manager.
Community connection has always been an important part of CAV’s mission, and it is particularly challenging during the COVID-19 outbreak when our communities can no longer gather for in-person social events, sporting activities, meetings, or conferences.
However, one positive outcome is we are all becoming more comfortable connecting with each other via video. The program is called “CAV Connect”.
If you look closely, you see the logo is inspired by CAV’s commitment to both ASL and LSQ communities. In fact, it is a bilingual logo that shows how VRS is signed in ASL and LSQ!
CAV’s Outreach Team will be hosting various webinars, webcasts and chat room discussions that address topics you’ve expressed interest in such as:
- Introduction to CAV’s Connect Program and Team Members
- Get to know Sue, CAV’s Executive Director
- Learn about various special topics of interest
I am happy to introduce the CAV Connect Team that include: Myself, Manager (Gatineau, QC); Diane Underschultz, Community Relations, Assistant Manager (Edmonton AB); Jo-Anne Bryan (Ottawa, ON), Bree Sproule (Kelowna, BC) and Patrick Lazure (Montreal, QC), Community Outreach Specialists; and Bryan Johnson (St. John’s, NL), Outreach Technical Support Consultant.
Please follow the calendar on our website to learn more about the CAV Connect Program, event topics, dates, and how to register.
We’re looking forward to connecting with you soon!
Pamela Witcher and the Canada VRS Team
