My Resignation

My Resignation
Canadian Druze Society of Ontario

View this email in your browser

 

 

 

 

 

Hello everyone, 

 

I am sending this letter to inform you of my resignation as the secretary at CDS. 

My involvement at CDS began with a sincere desire to contribute to a community I hold dear. In the beginning, from the first meeting I attended we had a goal to bring together the community and unite them towards a similar goal. 

Throughout my duration at CDS I have had a lot of wonderful experiences and met people that have become family. 

Unfortunately due to a number of circumstances I am no longer able to continue with this position. I wish you all the best of luck moving forward. 

 

Best, 

Bassam Elkhechen

 

Best Regards,
