Annual General Meeting: We hold an Annual General Meeting, the last day of classes in the second term, which includes the presentation of the Public Interest Project Reports, audited statements, upcoming year’s budget and volunteer recognition.
Social Events: We normally have one or two social events per year where staff, friends of the organization and board members can interact.
Training: Based on the needs of the board, specific training sessions will be organized. Some examples might be anti-racism/ anti-oppression, consensus decision making, financial accountability, non-profit board management etc.
Board Retreat/Strategic Planning: We normally hold a retreat each year to review and update our strategic plan, goals and direction. The focus of the retreat is to create a stronger board infrastructure, moving the strategic plan forward, creating the year’s priority issues areas and developing new outcome measures and performance indicators. (Most likely during July or August)
