After more than 40 years in the Regular and Reserve Force as a Logistics Officer and NCO, John has agreed to take on the position of Interim President of the CFLA until the end of February 2017. He looks forward to growing the organisation and meeting his personal goals in the short term. Please feel free to contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com .
I have accepted the interim position in order to ensure that the hard work that has gone before does not die. It is very important that we, as a profession and métier have a professional body that supports us, as part of the larger Logistics family. Continuing the growth the Association across Canada; and, formalizing both the governance structure as a Not-For-Profit entity; and building formal ties with the CF Logistics Service at the National level; my short term goals are measurable and achievable. In the longer term, we are aiming at supporting the full slate of events in partnership with our local logisticians of the Regular and Reserve Force across Canada for the 50th Anniversary Celebrations and the re-introduction of our Royal designator as the Royal Canadian Logistics Service during our year of celebrations. I look forward to working with all of you in the near and long term, and working closely with our new Colonel-Commandant, Mark McQuillan, and the senior leadership of the Branch.
