The Guild had our Annual General Meeting at Algonquin College this year. Firstly, we would like to apologize to those that tried to attend and were unable to find the location. We were moved from the Restaurant International to the amphitheatre and the signs were not as obvious as they should have been. Fortunately we had a quorum and were able to conduct our meeting.

Outgoing President Jay Hunt was thanked for his contribution to the Guild and our 2010 Board of Directors was acclaimed. The Board consists of existing members Bill Ellis, Maureen Murphy, Robert White, Burt Riverso, Ian Duncan, Mark Kilpatrick, David Skinner, Nicole Vallee and Rod Story as well as new board members Cynthia Mar, Francois Rochon and Richard Thibodeau. This new volunteer board looks forward to serving the member!

Guild Governors Gay Cook and Peter Collis were on hand to provide valuable input and support! And Joan Culliton, owner of the Ottawa Food and Wine Show, gave attendees an update on the 25th Anniversary (2010) edition of the event.

Here are some pictures from the event.
