The 2022 National Annual Meeting from 25 to 27 May 2022 will be held as Zoom meetings and will be open to all members. Everyone can attend without travelling anywhere! We will be able to bring you speakers to share their ideas with you in the comfort of your own home. Even though this year’s annual meeting will not be in person, Zoom will provide a visual experience where you will be able to see and hear our speakers and our national award winners. A varied and informative agenda is planned. The benefit of attending annual meetings is sharing with fellow members who truly believe in volunteer community service and learning from their experiences. Make plans to register and attend.
Ideally, it would be great that everyone join us by Zoom - no problem, you can call in. We may not be able to see each other; nevertheless we can still hear each other. Zoom offers Canadian phone numbers that will connect to each of the sessions. Long Distance fees will be charged for calls outside your area code based on the rates of your telephone service provider.
After you register for the National Annual Meeting the Zoom invitations will be emailed to you a day or two prior to each session. Please check each invitation email to make certain that you use the correct link to join the meeting.
