In an effort to better deploy our human and financial resources, we are embarking on a new staffing structure at OC. Final details are not yet in place, but here’s what we can tell you at this point:
Jennifer Caines, who served as OC’s office manager and assistant to the Executive Director from September 2009 until she started parental leave in December 2012, has left us to take the position of Program Assistant at the Coalition for Music Education in Canada. We miss her very much at OC, and know that Jennifer’s passion for music education, orchestras, and advocacy will ensure that we’ll be in regular contact!
Sarah Bobak, who has served as interim Office Manager will be leaving OC this Friday to pursue opportunities in event management. Sarah’s calm, competence, and infectious smile will serve her well in her career, and we’re grateful for all she’s brought to OC in the last year.
Two of OC’s long-time, part-time workers, Krista Wodelet, and Diann Missal of Young Associates, will be taking on expanded roles in website, database, and financial management. They’ll join Executive Director Katherine Carleton, Ontario Trillium Foundation-funded contractors Debra Chandler and Frederic Julien (through CAPACOA), and statistician C. Stephen Smith in our ongoing work on your behalf.
