President’s Report - 2019/20 Chapter Activities
The Ottawa Zone for Mathematics Educators (O34ME) had a successful year thanks to our Executive and Council Members. As a result of their dedication to collaboration and commitment to leading with the Chapter’s Mission, Values and Objectives, we were able to build capacity within our Chapter for leadership in mathematics education. We also brought awareness to membership of our strategic priorities through ongoing communication and support for professional learning experiences.
Mission: Fostering enthusiasm, innovation, and growth in mathematics education.
Vision: We value making teaching and learning mathematics accessible for all.
We recognize, as a Chapter, that the 2019/20 school year was wrought with exceptional challenges (e.g., job action, COVID19)--circumstances atypical for most educational organizations to navigate with their membership. Despite the challenges faced, there is an opportunity for O34ME to redress its plans for supporting membership and explore new opportunities for growth in 2020/21.
The information that follows in Tables 1 and 2 describes a year-in-review and prospective activities, respectively, as well as areas for growth--some of them taking into account any learning the Chapter has experienced under these exceptional circumstances.
In closing, it has been an absolute pleasure and privilege to have served as this year’s chair, working alongside such a focused, creative, open and collaborative group of professionals.

Thank you for this information. The first area I feel needs to be strengthened is communication. I was not aware that we had a website, facebook or Twitter accounts. I would like to be a more active member, and am happy that you have a variety of avenues for the spread of information. I am also happy that you are looking to do more online gatherings. It has sometimes been difficult (in the preCOVID world) for members who do not live within the city limits to attend gatherings. Please consider offering online workshops and conferences, even once the world rights itself.
