On behalf of all our employees and directors, I want to thank him for everything he's done for our caisse, our community and the larger cooperative movement. His dedication, sensitivity and in-depth knowledge of the reality of Caisse de la Culture members and the local cultural scene have been invaluable to our cooperative.
