Wall calendar 2022

The calendars have been printed and a single copy was mailed to all members in November. Extra calendars were available for purchase and sold out. We didn't have enough requests to do a second printing.

Annual General Meeting Monday November 22nd

The AGM went as expected, and the Society executive remains the same as in 2021. The planning meeting for 2022 is more important than usual since major changes to the Society are envisioned.

Society Planning Meeting Tuesday January 11, 2022 via Zoom

The meeting was well attended with lots of input from members as well as executive. The main change determined at that meeting was the adoption of a mixed online/physical format, with changes to events and activities to be tailored to the new model at the next executive planning meeting on Feb 22nd. We will no longer be using the Cedar Room at VanDusen Gardens for physical meetings due to various logistic issues.
