June 10 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

The Annual General Meeting of the Owen Sound Field Naturalists will go ahead using a Zoom format due to Covid-19 restrictions.  Our Constitution requires that we hold the AGM within 6 months of the end of our business//financial year, December 31. We will be meeting those requirements.

The Annual General Meeting is being held on Thursday, June 10, 2021 starting at 7 pm.
Here are the OSFN Annual General Meeting reports.

Here are some important instructions.
1. In advance of the meeting day, please ensure you can use ZOOM on your computer.
2. Review the Annual General Meeting Reports.
3. If, before the day of the meeting, you are aware of any questions you would like to ask, or concerns you would like to have addressed, please forward them to directors@osfn.ca so that you are not missed.  Additional questions or comments may be brought forward during the meeting as need be. (Zoom does allow for some discussion, but depending on how many people are in attendance, it can be awkward.)
4.The Zoom link will be sent out to members and to any non-members who reply to this e-herald and would like to attend.  You will receive it by Tuesday, June 8, 2021.
