Message from the President, Sheila Durnford
I just recently returned from a very productive, enjoyable and well organized CFFA Symposium which was held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, May 26th – May 31st. All those attending enjoyed the great hospitality of the Federation of Foster Families of Nova Scotia who hosted our week long event. A HUGE THANK YOU to the Federation and the Conference Committee for a job well done!
During the week various meetings were held, Executive meeting, Board of Director’s meeting, National Working Group, Executive Directors Meeting, President’s meeting, and of course the CFFA Annual General Meeting.
