Annual Meeting Information Webinars

Planning is well underway for the 3rd Annual Meeting of Fundy St. Lawrence Dawning Waters Regional Council, being held on June 4-5,and 14, 2021.  In preparation for the Annual Meeting, the Executive is offering three webinars so that members are able to ask questions for clarification about the matters that we will be voting on at the meeting. You will also have the opportunity to hear from the nominees for commissioners to General Council and President-Elect, so you are familiar with those whose names will be presented for voting.

It will help all of us have a productive meeting in June to have as many people as possible take part in the webinars. Thank you for your commitment to this United Church of ours and to your Regional Council. As more information becomes available, it will be posted on the website. In preparation for the webinars and the Annual Meeting, please take the time to read the posted material, including the Agenda, accessed using the link: Annual Meeting 2021
