Dear Eastern Canada Regional Members:

I am honoured and look forward to serving as your 2017 LMA Eastern Canada president. We are entering a very exciting time in the history of LMA and its evolution. Here are some of the structural changes to look forward to:


LMA reorganized into regions in 2017 and the Toronto chapter became part of the Eastern Canada region. This strategy was employed in order to improve opportunities and increase resources for all members, sponsors and all other stakeholders. One of the most exciting opportunities that the new regional board will be working on is a regional conference for the fall of 2017. In addition to the upcoming conference, the board has made arrangements to provide webcasts of several of our sessions for the members that due to distance, or time constraints, cannot attend in person.


The Regionalization came into effect formally as of January 2017. With the new structure there are more opportunities that ever before to get involved. Please do not hesitate to contact any of our board members to find out how. The Eastern Canada region is subdivided into local Steering Committees, the Toronto Steering Committee and the recently established Montreal Steering Committee. The committees will be working closely with the regional board to better serve you and find synergies in programming and resources available to you.


We have an exciting line up of events this year, both with content, as well as social events that will enable you to network with other members and LMA supporters. You will be notified by email of all upcoming events, however, please do check out website as well,, to make sure that you are receiving all our invites.

On behalf of the LMA Eastern Canada board, I want to encourage you to share with us any feedback or ideas that you would like to see implemented. Your insight is very important to us and it is critical to our betterment as an organization.

Lastly, I want to take this opportunity to thank the LMA Toronto’s past president, Kaley Green and the other board members for their hard work and determination to continuously improving this organization.


Best regards,

Gary Kalaci

LMA Eastern Canada President
