A Message from our Co-CEOs: Fall Community Newsletter

As summer draws to a close, at CMHA TVAMH, we are turning our attention to the beautiful days of fall and some exciting events in store for our organization. 

September is Recovery Month, and we are once again pleased to co-host the 15th Annual London Addiction Recovery Breakfast, along with Mission Services of London, The Salvation Army, and Turning Point Inc.  The breakfast will be held on Friday, September 22, and tickets are still available. Click here for more information.

On Thursday October 5, we will be hosting our Year in Review, our annual community meeting, when we will share updates about the accomplishments of the past year and celebrate the successes with our community partners.  Please join us at the Stoneridge Inn & Conference Centre. The event will run 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. RSVP by Thursday September 28. Click here to register.

And finally, this fall will see a change in leadership at CMHA TVAMHS.  We welcome our new CEO, Pam Tobin, MA, BA, who begins her work with us on October 2, 2023.  Pam comes to us with over 20 years of strategic leadership experience in community health and wellness and program design focusing on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. Former CEO of Oneida Nation of the Thames, her 2021 appointment aimed at advancing clean water, public safety, and program delivery. Pam also serves as Vice-Chair on the Pillar Non-Profit Board and on both the Quality & Culture and Strategic Redevelopment committees at London Health Sciences Centre. Previously, as National Director of Cancer Strategy, she addressed reconciliation and systemic racism in the health system throughout Canada. Pam’s awards include London Leading Women Leading Girls (2023), Change Maker of the Year and Impact Awards (2018). She holds a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology, a Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, and a Graduate Diploma in Project Management.

While it is bittersweet to say farewell to the Board, leaders and staff at CMHA TVAMHS, we are excited to hand the reins of this wonderful organization to Pam, who will no doubt continue to strengthen the services and programs already established and develop new opportunities with our partners.  It has been a privilege and an honour to shepherd our organization through integration, the challenges of the pandemic, and the many changes that have occurred in our health care and social systems in the last few years.  We are proud of the work we have done and confident in the plans for the future.

– Beth Mitchell and Linda Sibley
