On Thursday June 14th, the Board Directors for the Centre for Entrepreneurship Education and Development (CEED) and the Society for Enterprise Education and Development (SEED) met alongside CEED’s Executive Staff for a full day of meetings. In the morning, SEED held its AGM, followed by an Executive Committee Meeting. This was followed shortly by CEED’s AGM and Board of Director’s Meeting. These meetings were the last for outgoing board members Rebecca King and Dr .Robert Berard, who have come to the end of their terms.
“CEED has benefited enormously from Rebecca’s and Robert’s expertise and professionalism over the past several years,” says Craig MacMullan, CEO.
“And while both these individuals pack several decades of profound financial and education acumen [respectively], they’re also both excellent examples of what it takes to be successful as entrepreneurs: their openness to change, ability to pivot, and determination to succeed has really bode well for the organization over the years. I would classify them as having genuinely born entrepreneurial spirits.”
The purpose of these meetings was to have the Senior Staff and Board of Directors collaborate and discuss the successes and challenges of the past year, as well as future opportunities. One major initiative of the Executive Team discussed and supported by the Board at these meetings are their plans to reboot the Self Employment Benefit (SEB) Program and revamp our overall educational curriculum. Following the meetings, the Board of Directors and the entire CEED team — including our new Loans and Development Officer Ryan Robicheau– came together for a Wine and Cheese social to unwind and celebrate everyone’s hard work.
