International President Elect-Treasurer 2014-2016
Quota International of Huronia
ON, Canada – Region 1
Marie sees Quota’s growth as a Team approach. She wishes to use each of the new board members strengths, to take Quota into the future. Marie envisions that the board will use technology to educate not only its members but also our society to Quota’s mission. She sees Quota’s members becoming more accessible by the use of technology, such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Oovoo, Viber and any other new media or technology that can get Quota’s message out there. Marie wants to encourage the diversity of clubs to be chartered, enabling and embracing the effect of our diversity on many new areas of Quota. Development of new members will be a priority for her not only thru our existing clubs, but also thru development of new clubs such as Junior Quota Clubs, Silver Q Clubs, and Mixed Gender Clubs, and also thru Cyber Clubs. She will always respect the history and traditions of our valued long time members. Marie would like our Team to work hard together, but also to have fun and to develop strong life-long friendships.
