National Board of Directors Selected

It's official - the NCE Secretariat and The Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network welcome our Board of Directors to the job. The role of our national Board is to govern the corporation and represent the interests of our members and shareholders.

The Board is comprised of members from the private, academic and the public sectors that reflect the goals of the Network and our user community. One spot remains open on the Board and that is the Network Researcher representative. This position will be filled by the next Board of Directors meeting.

The Board's first meeting was held in Toronto on December 6, 2001. Highlights include approvals of the many operational functions and the operating budget. Management presented a complete historical overview and status report of the Network. In addition, Dr. Don Jamieson, CLLRNet's Scientific Director, presented the 2002 research program and its path for strategic evolution.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Martin Walmsley, former director of Ontario Premier's Council Technology Fund, accepted the position as Chair of the Board.
