For BIFHSGO members…
Register for our Annual General Meeting coming up on 12 June 2021 9 a.m. Of course, we won’t be together in-person. Now’s the time for you to have your say about BIFHSGO’s future. You will elect members as directors of the society—you could be one of them! The Board is looking for volunteers and you do not have to take on a full portfolio.
The minutes of last year’s meeting, this year’s agenda and other documents are available in the 2021 folder on the annual reports archive. As more documents become available, they will be added.
