This past week at our 1st Annual General Meeting, Members elected the first Governing Circle Directors. Technically, this should have been called a ‘special general meeting’. However, in planning, and reflecting on the activity and commitment of individuals and the founding governing circle members, giving it a ‘first’ status was natural. The journey of our organization to today is captured eloquently in the following video. Together, we are moving forward from convening to actions of collaboration. And we are looking forward to working with our members today and partners we have not met yet.
Volunteers are the backbone of many organizations. In addition to recognizing the leadership of the founding governing circle, we shared in gratitude and thanked two special volunteers for there organizing capacity – Gunilla Cruz and Kalson Abdi. Chi Miigwetch!
Following our meeting, we watched a documentary called Grab. Thanks TIFF Bell Lightbox for hosting us!
