Territory 13 Director

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dear Broker Member:

It has been brought to our attention that the current term of the Territory 13 Director position is coming up for renewal at the end of 2012 and we would like to pass along a message from the present Territory 13 Director, David Denyer.

“It has been my privilege to represent Territory 13 as Territory Director for the past 5 years. My term is concluding on December 31, 2012 and, as such, we are asking people interested in becoming the new Territory Director starting January 1, 2013 to have the form below completed ASAP and returned to Randy Carroll.

The reason for acting now is that if you are looking at becoming the Territory Director, you will be asked to sit as a member of the Working Group Committee for the 2012 period. This allows you to gain insight into the working of the IBAO.

I encourage anyone considering this very worthwhile task to first discuss it with your office principle and, I would be pleased to sit down and outline the duties, time commitments, etc. with both of you.

I also encourage everyone to consider volunteering at any level of the association, local or provincial.

I look forward to hearing from you if you chose to consider going forward with this application.

Thank you all for the opportunity to represent Territory 13!!”

 

David Denyer

DATE

Mr. Randy Carroll
Chief Executive Officer
Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario
1 Eglinton Ave. East, Suite 700
Toronto, Ontario M4P 3A1

SUBJECT: Nomination for Territory Director

Dear Mr. Carroll:

In accordance with the IBAO Administrative By-Laws, section 9(d) that states:

“The nomination of a candidate for election as Territory Director shall be made by petition in writing signed by at least five (5) individual brokers from and on behalf of five (5) different members from that territory electing such Director and must be received by the Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation at least sixty (60) days prior to the General Meeting of the Corporation”, I would like to nominate __________________________________ for Director for Territory ________________.
                                                                                                                       (Insert name of candidate)                                                               (Insert Territory #)

Thank you for your consideration.

In Memory of David Hamilton

By | Newsletter | No Comments

We are deeply saddened by the passing of David Hamilton.  He dedicated 25 years of service to our Association.  We are grateful for his genuine kindness, generosity and willness to help even after stepping down 2 years ago.  Our sincere condolences are being sent to his family.  The OIBA will be supporting both of David’s charities: Scouts Canada and Bruyere Foundation.  If you would like to attend the funeral service, it will be taking place tomorrow, Saturday January 8th at Calvin Christian Reformed Church located at 1475 Merivale Road at 11 a.m.

David passed away suddenly surrounded by his family in Colorado Springs, CO on December 22, 2010 at the age of 68.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife Madeline, daughters Sheri (Kevin) Lattemore of Colorado and Linda (Marco) Hunstad of Calgary, AB and by his much loved grandchildren Kenndra, Cameron, Chase, Joshua and Kylee who will always cherish the memories they had with their Grandad. He is predeceased by his parents Percy & Dorothy Hamilton.

David was born in Halifax, NS but spent the majority of his life in Ottawa, ON.

He worked as a Financial Administrator for CUSO where he had the opportunity to travel the world which became a passion.  His family would say he was never without a map in hand.

David also was the Business Manager for the Ottawa Insurance Brokers Association for many years.  More recently, he offered his accounting services to Newton & Company and Keller Engineering.

David spent many summers at his Indian Lake cottage where he enjoyed hosting family and friends. He took great pride in teaching us all how to water-ski and exploring the beauty of the Rideau Locks system.

He was involved with Scouts Canada for nearly 60 years. He was awarded a national level medal, the Silver Wolf “for service of the most exceptional character to Scouting” by the Governor General.

A funeral service for David will be held Saturday, January 8th at 11:00am at Calvin Christian Reformed Church – 1475 Merivale Road, Ottawa.
