I sit in the office in Orillia, on a very rare occasion where I have the entire place to myself. Normally there is chit chat of my fellow office collegues, the pitter patter of pug paws and the general busy-ness of it all. Today with Alan Doyle’s voice keeping me company in the background, I take a moment to think back at this entire year…..How far we have grown in a year!!!
OSLC is in 5 days!!!!!!! 5 days until the largest and longest running leadership conference in CANADA takes place! I wait in nervous anticipation for it……the moment of the Great Room just going absolutely wild. Have you ever tried to explain that feeling to someone? If not, try! It’s ridicuously hard!
While I work on this confernece for a year, I cannot, in no way, do it alone. I have a ton of people whose support I am very thankful for you.
Our SPONSORS - You make OSLC to continue to be bigger and better! Your support is so greatly appreicated!!!!
The Advisors of OSLC - I say this every year but I honestly feel like I know you, even though I have never even met some of you in person! Thank you for your patience and wanting your students to attend OSLC! If it wasn’t for teachers like you, the students wouldn’t be able to attend. I am extremely grateful!
The Delegates - You continue to amaze me each year, with your abundance of energy…(I seriously don’t know how you do it…..it takes a serious amount of coffee for me to stay that energized during OSLC…you just have it!) your amazing leadership skills and your genuine politeness! I couldn’t ask for better students to come to conference. Keep being amazing!!
The Hotel/Confence Staff- Liza, David, Luiggi, Phil and all the staff of the hotel - Thanks for all you do! You make my job easy!
