Treasurer Blog Post Update (Alex)

We didn’t hear from anyone regarding the treasurer position.

Cloud Petayi Interview (All)

Cloud has a sense that there is a feeling of community, a family. He will bring a positive can do attitude, a fresh perspective, and professionalism. In the business world it is about connecting with the people. He plays nyunga nyunga but is still learning and did traditional dance in primary school (not as cool in secondary) and his father was a musician.
