PSNM AGM POSTPONED
This year’s AGM is postponed due to the coronavirus outbreaks in our province. We are hoping to have the AGM paired with the Education Day in October.
According to the BC Registrar’s Office, we must either hold the meeting prior to November 1, 2020 or we would then be filing for an extension to hold our AGM within the first 3 month of 2021.
It is our hope that we will be able to hold the AGM in October, but we will have to decide closer to the time frame, as it is out of our hands.
Thank you for your understanding.
