Operations Manager Appointment at CEM

June 24, 2011

Dear Members and Friends of Canada East Mission,

It is with great joy that I announce a new addition to the CEM staff. Elder Tim Stanlick of the Guelph congregation is joining our team effective July 1, 2011. Tim has been assigned the role of Operations Manager.

Tim’s first task will be to assemble a cross-Canada team to plan and organize the many details of the June 16, 2012 Canadian National Conference. Over time, he will also take over some of the responsibilities that currently fall on the desk of the Mission President. This will allow me to work more effectively on the goals outlined in the 2020 Vision first presented at the 2009 Mission Conference.

Tim’s business career as well as his experience in ministry, including time in pastoral leadership, have prepared him well for this role. All of us in the office are excited to welcome Tim, and look forward to working with him. His positive outlook, thoughtful approach, and calm manner will be a blessing to Canada East Mission.

Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Tim as we continue our quest to fulfill the Mission of Jesus Christ.

Carman Thompson
Mission President
