The month of March marks the launch of the inaugural CIES Chronicle. The Chronicle will be published monthly and will serve as a window into what we as an organization are involved with for staff, instructors, clients, potential clients and stakeholders. In the end, our newsletter, like our blog, is a representational tool, as we hope to spread word about our existence, and let people know the many great services we provide for the immigrant and newcomer populace of Calgary. This month includes a message from our Executive Director Dr. Sally Zhao, our manager of Drop in Classes and Volunteers Melissa McKinnon, our volunteer of the month Abbie Bartel and much more. Please send us your ideas and suggestions for features and stories, as we would love to hear from you and enjoy our first edition of the Chronicle.
