We Are Pleased to Announce…

Last night was a success!!

Yesterday evening, A Team co-founder and coordinator, Cristina, gave a short presentation regarding the origins of the group and the difference it makes in our community. She did an amazing job — and as a result the A Team Waterloo Region now has funding from the KW Awesome Foundation!!

This is the very first grant that the A Team has received!.
.
BIG kudos to Cristina for her amazing pitch! And thank you to all those who were able to support this initiative.

We are humbled by the generosity of the KW Awesome Foundation and plan to do nothing short of Awesome things with the award.

It’s September!

Welcome back!

We hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer.

Thank you to everyone who was able to fill out our A Team survey. The feedback you provided will help us improve the way we run the A Team.

FYI For this series of meetings (September 2019- June 2020), the pre-meeting social activities will be led by group members. Each month we will ask one person to volunteer to bring./ demonstrate an activity or ‘show and share’ something that they are interested in/ passionate about – this could be a book, hobby, song, etc. The hope is that this will help us get to know one another, and give us some fun things to learn and discuss.

Wishing all a Jolly July!

Our support group will NOT be meeting this month. However, the A Team coordinators will be meeting ‘behind the scenes’ to discuss the feedback and ideas that were provided at our last meeting, and to devise a plan for the upcoming year. We will then update our website with the dates and topics for September 2019- June 2020.

If you are interested in doing some summer reading, consider taking a look at our updated ‘recommended further reading‘  list.

June Updates!

This month, we put on our ‘thinking caps’ in our OPEN meeting. We brainstormed potential meeting topics for our next session of meetings (starting in September). We also discussed what went well with the group over the last 10 months and where there might have been room for improvement.

Notes from our last meeting (with Carol McMullen as our guest speaker) are posted on our website. Click the link to view.

Thank you to all!!

Have a great summer and hope to see you in September!
