MCoS' 2024 AGM Recap

On Saturday, June 22, we gathered together at La Troupe de Jour in Saskatoon for our Annual General Meeting. We had a wonderful day filled with meaningful education, authentic connection, and celebration of multiculturalism in Saskatchewan!

Thank you to our panelists, Dr. Manuela Valle-Castro, Kelsey Aitcheson, and Bula Ghosh, for sharing your thoughts on how we can detangle multiculturalism from colonialism. You can read more about the interactive panel and discussion HERE.

A huge thank you to all the outgoing board members, Meka Okochi, David Camarador, Lisa Washinton, and Saqib Khan, whose expertise on the Board of Directors will be sorely missed. We wish you all the best in the future!

“I’m proud to have worked alongside such dedicated board members and, of course, staff. I already miss those whose terms have come to an end, and I’m equally excited to welcome our new board members and to continue MCoS mission and vision,” Amadi said.

“My journey with MCoS has been incredibly rewarding … I have seen firsthand the remarkable impact we’ve had on Saskatchewan’s communities, from the launching of our ICARE program, to the diligent work in succession planning that this board has done, in education, in community engagement: MCoS stands as a beacon for positive change.”

On her election as President, she said, “Once again, thank you for your confidence in me; I look forward to continuing our journey together and working towards an inclusive and connected Saskatchewan.”
