Great Lakes AGM and a New Executive Committee 

The Great Lakes Chapter AGM was held on June 4, 2015 in Toronto.  We were treated to a diverse and fascinating presentation from Richard Pietro, a self-proclaimed open government fanboy.  Richard’s artistry and storytelling generated a lot of discussion and interest among those in attendance.  You can follow him @richardpietro, view his many videos on YouTube, and listen to his Open Government Podcast on iTunes.  We thank him for his time.

We are pleased to announce that all positions for the Great Lakes Chapter Executive Committee were acclaimed at the AGM.  We welcome new Executive Members, Donna, Tracy and Kyal.  We’re very excited about our mix of experienced and new Executive members and the energy everyone is bringing to the table.

The 2015-2016 Great Lakes Chapter Executive Committee:

  • President – Karla Kolli
  • Past President – Carrie-Lynn Ognibene
  • Vice President – Donna Kell
  • Secretary – Kyal Butler
  • Treasurer – Tracey Ehl
  • Members at Large – Tracy Manolakakis, Inayat Singh and Brent Bullough

The new Executive held their initial meeting on July 6 to consider our strategic direction over the next couple of years.  We look forward to launching some exciting initiatives.  Stay tuned.

Although the Executive is in place, there is always a need for Chapter members to get involved in whatever capacity they can offer.  Please contact us at if you’d like to contribute to the chapter’s growth.
