As the year comes to an end, I would like to report to you on a complete sequence of events and issues that your Board of Directors undertook since elected in March 2016.
In the 2 nd quarter we were initially engaged in responding to and resolving several outstanding items,
from an AGLC Audit, that we inherited from previous years Administrations. In this process, we reviewed
former Board minutes, attempted to locate and identify certain documents and upgrade office files.
During this period, preliminary preparation was also undertaken for the Boian Museum Cultural picnic
and the Edmonton Heritage Festival.
The Canadian Romanian Society of Alberta was incorporated as a non-profit organization on April 4, 1978. The idea of forming a Romanian organization was first discussed at an Annual Meeting of the Sts. Constantine and Elena Church. Grants from the Provincial Government were being discussed at the meeting, although churches or religious organizations did not qualify for grants.
