Following is information on our newly confirmed date for the 2020 SLNA Annual General Meeting and Election:
When: Wednesday, October 28, 7 p.m.
Where: Online - we will host the meeting on the Zoom videoconferencing platform
All delegates and members of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood are invited to attend the SLNA's Annual General Meeting on October 28. We specifically urge all building, condo and home association delegates to plan to virtually attend this event to represent their building in the voting of motions and the election of new directors for the SLNA board.
The Annual General Meeting is an opportunity to learn about the issues and projects led or addressed by the SLNA over the past year and to raise questions and discuss the overall work and goals of this neighbourhood association.
