Annual General Meeting
Wednesday June 12,2013 at 7:00pm at Sperling Elementary!
It's been an exciting first year back for the Burnaby CPF Chapter! As you may know, we've been busy re-instating the chapter, applying for grants, setting up a movie night, a parent workshop and now Summer Camp!
For our next meeting, we need to make plans for the upcoming year, so we are hosting our AGM on at Sperling Elementary. Please see the flyer and agenda.
Our main focus will be to vote in the new budget and fill positions on our Executive committee. We hope this year we can get representation from all the school. We are currently just a small number of volunteer parents from 2 elementary schools. Please contact us if you are interested in volunteer next year! It can be as little as a few hours for one event, or forwarding updates to your school! We have great plans for future years but need your help to make them happen!
All members have voting privileges so we'd love to hear your voice!
