Sad News from CRCID.  See below.

Sandra Roberts moves that CRCID wind up its operation on March 31, 2014, or at such later date where the ceasing of operation is finalized.    Seconded by: Duncan Conrad

o    Discussion:  How we do this will require further attention.  Board will come back to the membership with the plan and financial requirements .  Opposed:  Bill Feyrer;

Approved

The Federal Government has created a new department that absorbed CIDA which funded CRCID.  The new agency is called the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD).  Their mandate does not allow for any of their funding to be used for admin purposes.  Completely ignoring the fact that CRCID was formed at the Federal Government's request.  CRCID has no alternative funding and has been given no time to try to put together their own fund raising program.

I have enjoyed being a part of CRCID and I feel they were wronged.  But unfortunately it doesn't matter what I or anyone involved with CRCID thinks.
