The MNBC 2021 AGM will be held on September 24-26, 2021, virtually on Zoom.
Some of you may be asking why MNBC is not holding the 2021 AGM in-person. While we were hopeful that the 2021 AGM could be held in-person, it was impossible to do for the following reasons:
- The funding MNBC received to hold the 2021 AGM in-person was re-allocated to MNBC Chartered Communities. With the health restrictions expected to be in place in September 2021, it was decided by the [MNBC Board of Directors] that this funding was better utilized in the hands of our Communities and Citizens.
- Provincial health restrictions must be in Step 4 to allow an in-person AGM. The earliest Step 4 restrictions will be applied in BC is September 7th. There is no guarantee that these restrictions will be lifted on this date, as they are contingent on COVID-19 case counts and vaccination rates. The staff time and resources required to plan an in-person event requires significant lead time that is not feasible under the current guidelines.
