On behalf of the Manitoba Council of Reading Clinicians, I would like to take this moment to wish you all good health and strength during this trying time caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. While we navigate our new world reality, we at MCRC will continue to strive to provide our members and readers current information on literacy and learning.
We hope this message finds you and your family in good health. We would like to let MCRC members know that after a meeting of the executive council, a decision was made to postpone our annual general meeting to the fall; date to be determined in due time. We wish you all strength and courage during this pandemic time and we are looking forward to seeing you all at our fall AGM meeting.
We want you also to know that the International Literacy Association is taking action to support educators during this time. Free resources can be found on their website. As well it is important to note that voting opportunities are now open for board elections if you are a member of ILA. Members are encouraged to vote for three at-large candidates and one vice president candidate. You can read about the candidates here.
