FYI - Please see announcement below regarding Adam Chowaniec appointed as new Chair of the Ontario Research and Innovation Council.

Memorandum to:  ITAC Board of Directors / Board of Governors / ITAC Ontario Board of Directors

From:  Bernard Courtois

I am delighted to give you a "heads up" that Adam Chowaniec, Chairman of the Board of Tundra Semiconductor and Past Chair (and current Director) of ITAC, has been named by Premier McGuinty as the new Chair of the Ontario Research and Innovation Council.  Other members of the Council will be named in the coming weeks.

This is great news for ITAC, and the ICT industry.  It is also good news for Ontario as the Council is bound to be able to play a useful role under Adam's leadership.

Congratulations, Adam!

Also, please let me take this opportunity to wish all ITAC Directors and Governors the very best of the holiday season.  I look forward to working with you all again in the coming year.

Best personal regards,

Bernard
