Thank you to Tamara Herman

It is with deep regret that we say goodbye to Tamara Herman.  She was with CCAP for two years, and is still with us in spirit as she volunteers for some of our events, by stepping in as Christy Clark in our recent march to raise the welfare rates.

Her quietly dynamic presence supported us through two hotel reports, an SRO Convention, plans for Carnegie TV and many other actions and CCAP volunteer meetings.  She will be sorely missed as she moves on to her new job, but she is still part of the Carnegie family.  We wish her the best.

Thank you to Ivan Drury

The Carnegie Community Centre Association would like to thank Ivan Drury for his valuable and tireless work on behalf of the low-income community in the Downtown Eastside.

Ivan has resigned from his position as CCAP’s main organizer as of Monday April 15th, 2013.

We welcome King-mong Chan, who has been hired part-time to organize with the low-income Chinese community and to take over some of Ivan’s duties.
In community,
