Thank you, David MacDonald.

Thank You!

David MacDonald has tendered his resignation from the OCTRA Board of Directors and the position of OCTRA Vice President. David was elected to the OCTRA BOD as Vice President at the AGM in February 2018. During his time as VP, David organized the OCTRA 50th Anniversary Easy Fit Saddle Raffle which netted OCTRA $1,000. We thank David for his time and efforts. Wishing him all the best in his future

As a result of David’s resignation, current board member Deborah McBride has accepted the position of OCTRA Vice President. Rose Danko, long time past board member and the member with the next greatest number of votes at the February AGM, has agreed to rejoin the Board of Directors effective immediately. We thank Deborah and Rose for stepping up to the plate to fill the vacancies.

Assistant Webmaster Wanted.

To avoid the potential “hit by a bus” corporate crisis, OCTRA desires a second person to help manage the website. The qualified volunteer will have strong computer skills and some experience managing a WordPress website.

Basic knowledge of HTML is required. Knowledge of CSS is an advantage. Experience with PHP programming would be outstanding.
