CHANGE OF NAME FOR FOUNDATION
President of the North America Board, Stacy Evans, said the decision had been taken jointly by the American and Wales Boards to reflect the growing role played by Canadian members. “It was time we recognised the importance of Canada to our movement, especially this year with the North America Festival of Wales takiing place in Calgary."
Prof. Jon Roper, Vice-President, Wales, said the Wales Board was unanimous in its support. “Significant numbers of Welsh people migrated to Canada as well as the USA and it is important the Foundation reflects this as well as the support it receives from members in Canada.”
