“Plough up the fallow ground. Thresh and get out the corn.”
A threshing session for the future of the Association
Please plan on joining us on Saturday September 20, 2014 as
we discern a plan for the future of the Association. With over forty
years of service, the Association continues to change and evolve as we
strive to achieve our mission to preserve and communicate the ongoing
history and faith of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in
Canada and their contribution to the Canadian Experience.
day will begin with our annual general meeting to conduct the formal
business of the incorporated Association. After lunch, members will be
working in small groups to review and make suggestions on various
aspects of the Association, culminating in a strategic planning
document that will provide direction to the new Executive Committee.
There will also be time for a tour inside the Temple and the
surrounding grounds. The day will conclude with a harvest supper and
Craig Heron (York University) will deliver the keynote address,
focusing on the changing demands being placed on public history
institutions in Ontario. Professor Heron is a former Vice-Chair of the
Ontario Heritage Foundation, Chair and Board Member of the Workers'
Arts and Heritage Centre, President of the Canadian Historical
Association, Board Member of the Canadian Federation for Humanities and
Social Sciences, and a Member of the Service Advisory Board, Library
and Archives Canada.
