WGI NEWS

  MO Connection Newsletter
 August 15, 2018 Those in attendance: Ali Sahebi (Iran), Al Zamel (Kuwait), Katina Diano-Vandenbroeck (Philippines), Jean Seville Suffield (Canada), Susan Fleming (Australia), Masaki Kakitani (Japan), Denzyl Wibooi (South Africa), John Cooper (Board Chair), and Kim Olver (WGI ED). We had another productive and positive meeting. John and Kim shared the discussions of the International Board in Bogota. The Board is excited to restructure and become more representative of our membership by all MOs having representation on the board, instead of just large geographic areas being represented. We know we want to be an umbrella organization that creates standards to protect the quality of the work being done, provides an International presence for MOs to reference, and helps connect MOs with the exciting things that are happening other countries. WGI does not want to piecemeal this, nor do we want to decide everything without MO input. We plan to get a draft package together of what we are thinking and once this is complete and agreed upon, we will send it out for your comments, questions, suggestions and feedback. Stay tuned.
