Member Discussion Meeting – Amendment #2 and Amendment #5
March 20 @ 3:45 pm - 5:45 pm
CFUW has distributed a number of items for discussion this year at the Annual General Meeting scheduled for June 23, 2018. Due to the large number of items which have been distributed for debate we are hosting a series of member discussion meetings to cover all items and prepare for the UWCV AGM. All Club members are invited and welcome to attend all sessions. Your thoughts and comments on these items are very important in the deliberations leading to the recommendations made to our members for our own AGM in June. Please join us at both the stand-alone sessions as well as the Federation Committee meetings.
