BCITRA Spring 2022
The Best Laid Plans …
On Saturday, March 12, as I write this article, I realize it is the second anniversary of the unfortunate cancellation of the AGM scheduled for 2020. We did not have an AGM that year at all. In 2021 we had a ZOOM meeting for our AGM. This year we evolve yet again and are planning to have an AGM which will be a hybrid meeting, with some members in attendance in person and some present via ZOOM again.
Save the date, Thursday June 9th, 2022*, and plan to attend our AGM, using the medium of your choice, in the morning hours. We have booked Townsquare D as usual.
According to the PHO orders we could have a meeting for all face to face. There will be no restrictions to follow regarding the wearing of masks and the requirement for using vaccine passports should expire as of April 8. I realize, however, that having ZOOM capabilities sat well with members who are not in the lower mainland and allows for caution on the part of those individuals who are not comfortable in indoor events at the present time. As I went grocery shopping yesterday very few were without masks and I wore mine indoors and out as usual. There are many vulnerable people within our membership ranks so this allows comfort for all.
We are still in the early stages of planning for the AGM with much more work to be done. We will be informing members about further details as they become available. We welcome your comments about the AGM via the firstname.lastname@example.org channel as always.
Take care, stay safe and have a happy spring.
Donna Foster, President
