IIBEC SOC Annual General Meeting – January 28, 2021
The IIBEC Southern Ontario Chapter held its first ever virtual Annual General Meeting on January 28th, 2021 with a total of 56 members attending. Unlike other years, we were unable to host a networking and curling event following the AGM.
The event began with an opening message from the current Chapter President Denis Theriault and an introduction of the current 2020 Board of Directors. Denis thanked the current Board for their work throughout the year. Denis introduced the incoming president Allen Lyte and Kevin Voorberg reviewed the 2020 Financial Statements and the proposed 2021 Budget. Following the financial statement, each of the Committee Directors provided an update on the progress of their respective committees.
