Annual General Meeting

It’s that time of year again when LMDSS needs to host our Annual General Meeting.

This is a great way to learn what we have been up to as an organization, what’s new, and to hear from our membership on their ideas of what they would like to see in the future.

It is also a time that our members vote on new board members.

If you are interested in learning more about sitting on the LMDSS board, what positions are available, please contact Theresa at 604-591-2722 ,or by email at info@lmdss.com

The Annual General Meeting will be taking place on Sunday, June 14 th, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. location to be announced at a later date.
