2012 AGM Recap

Thanks to our volunteers (L to R) Heather, Fran and
Shirley for manning our registration table

We held our Annual General Meeting this past Saturday on September 8, 2012 at the Mayfield Inn. Thanks to all the GoodHearts members who were able to join us for the breakfast meeting and presentation.

Our president, Jackie Foord, chaired the meeting and presented her Annual Report which highlighted what GoodHearts has been up to in the past year, including a summary of our Transplant Housing and other programs. Watch for an upcoming post featuring a more detailed summary of the Annual Report.

Our new Board of Directors was elected and introduced to the members.  The board is comprised of returning members Silvio, Jackie, Jenn, Maggie, Barb and Josh, along with new member Helene. In the coming months the directors will be introducing themselves to you.

Speaker Jeff Simpson presenting to the group
Our speaker for the morning was Jeff Simpson of the Simpson Group Insurance Services Inc. Jeff has 21 years of experience in the travel medical and health insurance. He works with insurance providers offering basic through complex medically underwritten insurance plans. He spoke about concerns transplant patients have with obtaining good travel insurance, the different types of insurance available and the best ways for transplant patients to secure coverage. His presentation was popular with our members so we have invited Jeff to do a guest blog in the next few weeks, and present more information on this topic.
