LEPS and LAPS and AGMs on the calendar

Two community groups will be hosting their biggest meetings of the year virtually

Two organizations with similar acronyms – LEPS and LAPS – are having their annual general meetings one day apart.

Annual general meetings are a chance for organizations and charities to review the past year, go over financial details, and discuss direction for the future. Each group has rules about who can vote at the annual general meeting.

LEPS has its AGM on Monday, Nov. 16 starting at 6 p.m. It will be a virtual gathering for anyone wanting to take part.

The Langley Environmental Partners Society meeting will be a Zoom event. To receive an invitation, email exec_director@leps.bc.ca.
