On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff at ACFO, I would like to wish you and yours all the best this holiday season.

I know this time of year can be stressful, especially in the current working environment.  I hope the next couple weeks provide you the opportunity to spend time with loved ones, and above all, relax and unwind.

The holiday season is an opportune time to put our problems in perspective.  We are truly blessed to live and work in a safe, prosperous country such as Canada.  It’s important to keep in mind that despite the challenges in our lives, there are people far less fortunate than ourselves.

As we take time to celebrate the holidays, let’s all show each other the love, patience, and charity that this season represents.   I encourage all FIs to take action, no matter how big or small, to make this time of year more joyous for someone in need.

May you and all your coworkers, family, and friends have a lovely holiday season filled with joy and meaning.

Warmest regards,

Milt Isaacs, CMA, CPFA
