Greetings to Clan MacRae Members,
It was an unexpected honour and a privilege to be
elected president of the Clan MacRae Society of Canada at the annual
general meeting in Victoria in May. I look forward to the
opportunity to work with you as we continue to fulfill the
objectives of our Clan Society. I believe there are exciting possibilities
ahead and I am counting on your participation and support.
I believe I can speak on behalf of the whole society when I say how deeply
appreciative are the members of the Clan MacRae Society of Canada for the
leadership of Dr. Robert MacRae - for his vision, leadership and
achievements during the last decade. His are big shoes to fill but I will
offer my time and talents to the society and I invite you to join me as we
continue to build a solid Clan Society in Canada.
Our country is vast in size and I know the challenges are great. At the
AGM, we increased the number of directors from nine to twenty. I supported
this move for it will help enormously, not only to allow a wider
representation on the board of directors from across the country, but it
will also draw on many more of the talents of our members.
Please feel free to e-mail at any time with your suggestions and your
Owen C. MacRae, President
