Dear HAPPO community,
I would like to sincerely thank you for the support and warm welcome you have given to me as the Montreal champion for Help a PR Pro Out (HAPPO on Twitter). I only hope and pray that I can continue what innovative visionaries, Valerie Simon and Arik Hanson have started, growing the community in Canada, via the #HappoCAN tag.
I have a request: HAPPO has grown thanks to the phenomenal participation of community members. It is only through your participation and assistance that we can get the Canadian community running. Even if you aren’t in Canada, you can help! Just spread the word to your Canadian colleagues: whether they are leaders in the PR industry, or students who will be future leaders. Let the world know. It is our responsibility to the communities that have given us so much to give back by fostering their growth. Your participation is directly the cause of this growth.
So as we brace for HAPPO 4/30 Let us remember, that Canada Can! Also join the HAPPO LinkedIN group. It is a great opportunity to network and will significantly increase your chances to make lasting connections and set you on your path to a brilliant, exciting, and engaging new career!

On Tuesday 12 January, at 16.53 Haiti time, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti. This was quickly followed by two aftershocks, measuring 5.9 and 5.5 on the Richter scale.
The first aid relief didn’t arrive till two days later, by then an estimated 100,000 casualties were reported.
In the last issue of the Winters Free Press (March Edition), I began a section called Meeting the Fellows. Who are Fellows?
Fellows are chosen from both inside the University community and outside in the world beyond the campus boundaries. They are selected on the basis of the contribution they can make to the academic, intellectual and artistic life of the Winters community
Most people however, are not aware of who the fellows are and what their role is. Each month we (try to) introduce a fellow by either interviewing them, or writing an article about the work they do. This allows both the students to recognize who the fellows are and what they stand for, and it allows for the appreciation of the revered members of our community.
The March issue had the following article. Please click the image for the full version. Stay tuned for more. If you would like to contribute to the Winters Free Press, please leave a message here and we will get in touch with you.
