sadness that Mr. Peter Wolters passed away suddenly earlier this
year. Peter had always been a very strong supporter of our
institution, spending countless years volunteering at all levels of
the organization including 10 years on the Fredericton Board of
Directors, two years as the Chapter President from 1997-1999 and
again in 2013. He was also elected on the National Board of
Directors for five years and was the National President in
Significant changes took place for the fmi*igf organization during
this time period and Peter was involved in developing policies and
procedures for the Chapter Investment Fund, overseeing a review of
the National Office staffing structure, and coordinating the review
of fmi*igf policies and by-laws. For all his hard work and
invaluable contributions to the organization, Peter Wolters will be
awarded the fmi*igf Award of Excellence, posthumously at PD Week
