2017 AGM & Graduation Highlights
On November 23rd, 2017...
CICR hosted its Annual General Meeting (AGM) where two new board members were elected: Rachael Strong and Sara Kemp. We welcome these new Directors to our team.
After the AGM, CICR held its annual graduation ceremony where a record breaking 52 participants were inducted as TPN graduates. We would like to welcome these new graduates to our CICR family and to our conflict resolution community and network. We had an excellent speech by our guest speaker and CICR Alumni Yolaine Kirlew, City councillor at Sioux Lookout after which many graduates reflected on their purpose as agents of peace.

That evening, CICR also honoured the memory of its late trainer and member Richard Batsinduka by renaming the CICR Peace Award to the Batsinduka Award for Peace. The award was handed, with great pleasure, to Mr. Donald Nicholls, Director of the Department of Justice and Correctional Services and a leader in the Cree Nation, committed to building the capacity of his people to peacefully resolve conflict through a customized TPN program.
