Dear Members - I often get questioned what are the benefits of an OTC Membership? This newsletter highlights the recent announcement of the National Trails Coalition Project for 2014-15. I am volunteering my time on your behalf to the guidance of this project at the national and provincial levels.
I would encourage all Ontario trail groups to join the OTC to take advantage of the program. Your membership support keeps the OTC office open, pays important administrative expenses and ensures we are able to respond when federal or provincial movies arrive for your use.
Hamilton is host to the OTC 2014 OTC AGM. We wish to THANKMcMaster University for acting as host.

Over the past 4 weeks we have not published Trailwise. We have used the time instead to refine our mailing list to include members only.
We have over the years provided copies to non-members as a means of education and awareness about trails. Due to CASL we are focused instead on providing a top notch member based newsletter. So if you are a member you are in the news!
After July 1, 2014, the OTC Newsletter page on the OTC main website will be re-configured for new approvals to conform with CASL requirements.
We will be adjusting our maillist to ensure we are targeting member organizations, and those who have expressed an interest in receiving TrailWise in the past.
As a member, and based upon the educational nature of our work, you are entitled to Trailwise as an OTC service. It's part of the OTC membership package. If as a member you do not want Trailwise, please opt-out of the list which you can do here: UNSUBSCRIBE
Our newsletter is the only item we send by email to a large email list. By July 1, 2014 please reaffirm your interest by going to the OTC sign up page at:REJOIN
Please go to our Newsletter Page to Rejoin if you so decide.
Please call our office at 613-484-1140 if you have any questions about our MAILING LISTS.
Regards, Patrick Connor, Executive Director
