It is with great regret that Skate Ontario announces the resignation of Melissa Fraser, Coordinator, Club Support Services effective January 7, 2022. Melissa has accepted an new role with the MasterCard Foundation.
Melissa started with Skate Ontario shortly after the amalgamation as Administrator, Operations and quickly excelled in this position. Being the first point of contact for the organization, she built a strong rapport with our members, in particular with our member Clubs and Skating Schools. Melissa was promoted to Coordinator, Club Support Services and held this position for just over 3 years. Through this role she connected and communicated effectively with our clubs and skating schools, assisting them with the development and implementation policies, procedures and a multitude of other off-ice operational issues encountered by Boards, parents and other stakeholders.
She was an instrumental member of our Skate Ontario team and was an absolute pleasure to work with. We will all miss working with her, but extend our best wishes to her as she moves onto this new, exciting chapter in her life.
In Melissa’s absence, please send any club/skating school questions and concerns to Derek Ventnor, Director, Finance and Operations.
