    Hi everyone! I'm so happy for this opportunity to connect with you. I'm Gale and I'm the Marketing and Events Coordinator for our awesome branch. I've been a member of Barrie branch since 2009 and I've seen a "few" changes over the years and how we've grown and thrived. I think we can grow and thrive even more with everyone's help.

    We want to make sure that as a community and a branch we are able to provide you with webinars and speaker events that will help you be the best you can be in your role and in future roles. One way of doing this is to have businesses as community partners (sponsors). I can go through the directories online or the Chamber of Commerce and call random companies but it means so much more if there is a connection that can be made. I'm not asking you to do the asking, unless you want to of course, but if you can give me a contact name and email or phone number I will do the rest. We have so many ways to make these partnerships work so that both sides benefit. If not the company you work for then maybe there is a company or service that you use at work like a coffee vendor, a supplier, catering service etc that we could approach.

    Alternatively, if the company you work for or a business or service you use personally might donate a drawprize for our PD day in June let us know...everyone loves winning a prize and it's free advertising for them.

    You can respond to me through this post or email me directly at

    You've heard the saying...the more you give the more you get...well we want to make sure you are getting the most we can give!

    Thank you so much!
