Our first of this year's semi-monthly meetings in preparation for the Municipal Election.
As previously announced, the first of our semi-monthly Election 2022 meetings will be taking place this Thursday (Feb.17) at 5:30pm. This will be a virtual meeting at meet.google.com/ish-yyuq-yha – we're hoping to get to in-person or at least hybrid sometime soon, but with the Health Unit's reporting still in the "red zone", we don't want to be responsible for further burdening our already-stressed health care workers!
Non-members are again welcome to attend. However, after some concerns arising from our January meeting, we ask that all attendees use their own name to identify themselves (as opposed to a company or organization), and start with their camera on for a quick "hello", to ensure the comfort and safety of all in attendance. ("Creating safe spaces" is, of course, one of our founding principles!)
We've got a draft agenda up at https://docs.google.com/document/d/19NPmTe-ckn59Pm7VCOYldIS_HSnT_M0ISsMHEM_e-eM/edit?usp=sharing – let us know if there's something else you'd like included!
As you will see, we're looking for a volunteer to take the meeting notes on Thursday. We're also looking to put together a team of people willing to take the lead on these meetings in the future. (We will always have at least one Board member attending, but would appreciate the assistance and backup, as there's already lots on our plates!) If you're interested in volunteering and/or would like to know more before you commit, please get in touch with us, we're happy to chat!
Looking forward to the brainstorming!
Alyssa, Paige, Kenzie & Myrna
