Serving With Pride is Looking for Leaders!
Serving with Pride is moving forward, are you ready to jump in?
On Friday, October 13th, 2006 in Toronto, Ontario twenty-nine LGBTQ officers met to begin the groundwork for what we know as Serving With Pride today. Over the past 8 years this great organization has grown and gone through many changes, and I promise that there will be many more positive changes to come in the near future.
Our first change is the way we communicate, and I hope that you enjoy this new format. I will begin by saying that this email is being sent out to all members, current and expired. With that being said, this format gives you the option to update your subscription preferences which is automatically updated on our end, unsubscribe should you wish to do so, or view the email in your browser to share with those around you. Should you choose to subscribe to this list we still strive to provide monthly updates on the state of the organization, events and meetings within Ontario, and important LGBTQ related news from across the country and world.
The second, and arguably the most important change that is taking place is the placement of a new executive that will see Serving With Pride into the next few years - and that is the reason that I am emailing you today.
In order to move forward, Serving With Pride is required to fill the following seven (7) executive positions;

- Brian Mitchell has submitted candidacy
- Three (3) Directors-at-large
- Danielle Bottineau and Paula Prosovich submitted candidacy
Serving With Pride is looking for forward-thinking and dedicated individuals who can volunteer a minimal amount of time each month to assist with the goals of the organization. If you believe you may be interested in any of the above mentioned positions please reply to this email with your interest and experience no later than Friday, May 15th, 2015. With candidates in place, an AGM will be held and an executive will put in place.
Lastly, as per the Constitution you must be a member in good standing in order to a) be placed in any of the above positions and b) vote as a member in good standing.
I appreciate your dedication to this great organization, and as a token of my appreciation should you choose to come back to Serving With Pride, I will extend your membership period until December 31st, 2016. That's 20 months for $35.00!
On behalf of our team, David Snoddy (Ottawa Police Service), Lori Doonan (OPP), Paula Prosovitch (Toronto Police Service), Steve Hertel (University of Toronto Police), Annie Gagnon (OPP), Danielle Bottineau (Toronto Police Service), Rob Dunford (OPP) and finally myself, Brian Mitchell (Hamilton Police Service), we thank you for taking the time to read this email and look forward to the advancement of this great organization.
