It's that time of year again!
Our Annual General Meeting is just around the corner and we want to invite our members to join us for an evening of all things Opt! The AGM gives us an opportunity to update our membership and stakeholders on all of the things that have happened in the past year, celebrate our successes, and look forward to what opportunities are on the horizon.
The AGM starts at 7:00 p.m. November 17th in the atrium of our Provincial Office. The Opt Provincial Office is located at 3550 E. Hastings Street in Vancouver. All Opt members and friends are invited to attend.
Please come early to connect, network, and chat with Opt community members, staff, volunteers, and Board members over some appetizers before the meeting gets underway. We will open our doors at 6 p.m. so that everyone has a chance to connect before the formal portion of the meeting gets underway at 7 p.m.
In addition to the regular business items at the AGM, we will also have an information session and awards ceremony. We are pleased to announce that Glen Hansman, President of the BC Teachers' Federation will be our keynote speaker for the evening. He will be sharing their vision for BC schools as it relates to three areas of focus - Indigenous curriculum, LGBTQI2+ youth, and Sexual Health Education.
At the completion of the formal meeting and information session we will present awards recognizing some of the amazing Opt staff, volunteers, and community members who really stood out this past year.
