December Newsletter

Winter has now officially begun, and the Board of Regina Car Share Co-operative would like to extend a Merry Christmas greeting to you this season.
Some news to wrap up the year includes the expansion of our Board to now include seven members. Welcome to new Board members Kim Kovacs, Mark Cazakoff, and Kelly Liberet, who have all volunteered their time to attend meetings. They've ensured our co-operative meets its legal obligations, and has participation from its members. Still with the Board are myself (John Klein), Secretary Lori Reichert, Vice President/Treasurer Christian Soucie, and Curtis Wiebe. There's still room on the Board for up to 5 more Directors, so if you're interested in pitching in a couple hours a month, we'd appreciate your contribution. We also accept help from non-member volunteers, so if you'd like to be notified when we're looking for a specific skill-set, please let us know.
In October, Regina Car Share hosted a citizen's circle in the Design Regina project to help Regina create a 25 year plan. You can see ours (listed as "Saskboy's Group", and a dozen other suggested priorities for the plan, at their website:
A quick reminder that members who are listed as a referrer on a new member's application, receive a $25.00 credit on their account. So, you might not be able to afford a car for that very special someone, but you might be able to give a shared car. It is the season for giving, and for sharing.
Yours in sharing, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

John Klein
