From to president

Alain Michaud largeur100

Dear members,
This year’s holiday season will undoubtedly be happier than last year when there was a ban on gatherings in our homes. I join the members of the Board of Directors in wishing you good meetings, obviously with all the caution required in this still present context of a pandemic.

To enhance this difficult period, we have concocted an edition of the Brelan particularly positive. This is reflected in the accomplishments of "Michaud", which, in their time and for very different reasons, arouse our admiration.

The Alfred, Gilles, Simon, Antonine, Blandine, Lise, Stephan Edward and Bertin, whose achievements are recounted in our December review, are Michauds who, benefiting from the support of their loved ones, have brought a lot to their community.

In another life, where I had the opportunity to teach management at academics, we still had to evoke the famous theory of motivation of the American psychologist Abraham Maslow (1908-1970). Very close to the top of Maslow's pyramid of needs is esteem where you find confidence, success, respect for others and respect by others. May these values correspond to these Michauds who honor the motto of our association, Feray ce que diray! (translate : I would do what I say)

I would also like to take this opportunity to reiterate the invitation to you, dear readers, to send us the story of Michaud who, through their actions and their perseverance, have become famous. What a great opportunity to perpetuate their memory, knowing that our Brelan is kept in the national archives of Quebec (BaNQ) and Canada (Library and Archives Canada). If you would like to know more, consult the Editorial Policy.

May the year bring you health, happiness and many opportunities to allow you to enjoy the great and small things in life in serenity. May our beautiful association of families once again this year count on your participation to continue its activities and tell the story of our common ancestor Pierre Micheau (1637-1702) and the accomplishments of his descendants.
