2020 AGM Update

Due to COVID-19 and the continued restrictions on large gatherings it is unlikely that the 2020 AGM, which was originally scheduled for March, can go ahead as hoped in early June. There is much uncertainty on how the situation will change as Canada and BC lift restrictions. The Board is therefore announcing further postponement of the AGM until October 2020. This will give the Board time to evaluate options on how the AGM could be held, including a virtual meeting as could be possible according to the Society’s Act.

– President

We are also looking for volunteers who are willing to help organize future events, once we can resume our activities. Specifically, the following events need organizers who step up to help with making the events happen.
