Director's Note

Hello BBYO Lake Ontario Region! I hope you're as excited as I am for the awesome year we have ahead. I can't even contain myself thinking about all of the programs, events and conventions we have lined up, starting with Neon Boat Cruise on September 7 and Inter-Regional Leadership Training Conference (iRLTC) on September 19-21 - with members from across Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal!! Make sure to check out the Upcoming Dates section below for more information on these events and others to come.

I can't wait to see you all when weekly Chapter Meetings resume on September 3.

Here's to a year of being part of something great,

Kevin Goodman
