The Campbell River Volunteer Society will hold its AGM at the Campbell River Museum on Monday, June 20.
In 1988, an initiative by the Committee for the Promotion of Healthy Aging identified a need for a Volunteer Centre in Campbell River. The first board of directors was formed in 1989 and the centre became a society on July 10, 1990. It is now a vibrant community agency, supporting volunteers and non-profit organizations in Campbell River and surrounding areas.
The AGM will start off with networking and appetizers at 5 p.m. followed by the AGM at 5:30 p.m. The society will then listen to Rhonda Teramura of Tremain Media speak about non-profit Social Media Engagement: Cost Effective Growing, Enhancing and Retaining Relationships in the Modern Landscape.
Volunteers, organizations and board members are welcome. Meet the board of directors, network with other non-profits, take part in the silent auction, enjoy some appetizers from sponsor Thrifty Foods, win door prizes and support the Campbell River Volunteer Society.
The AGM will consist of voting in new board members, a financial review, last year’s highlights and a new video release. This is a free event with donations accepted. To register, contact the centre at 250-287-8111 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org by June 13.
