Annual General Meeting

Wednesday November 18 2020  7-9pm

Dear RACCC Members,

With the approach of fall, it is time to start planning for the Annual General Meeting (AGM). As with many club-related activities this year, adjustments are necessary due to the ongoing challenges associated with COVID. Consequently, the RACCC’s 2020 AGM will be a virtual meeting to be hosted using the Zoom platform on Wednesday November 18th, 2020 from 7 to 9 pm.  

To ensure that the virtual AGM unfolds as smoothly as possible, the Executive requests that members who wish to participate in the AGM contact Mark S by Wednesday November 11th, 2020. They will then be provided with instructions on how to join the meeting.

Note, as part of this year’s AGM, time will be allocated in the agenda to review the club’s COVID protocols and seek feedback from the membership.  As well, if you should have any topics to address, please contact Mark S.

In preparation for the AGM, I invite all club members to consider serving on the 2020/2021 club executive.  If you are interested, please contact Karen H.
