2021 Annual General Meeting

Thank you for attending our AGM! 
Our LIFE staff created, planned and hosted our 2nd virtual AGM on June 9th, with 55 people logged onto zoom to participate!  Connection through technology! 

Throughout the winter and spring, we hosted Connections LIVE events to provide an opportunity for people to gather and connect safely from their own homes.  Events have been a lot of fun, well attended and enthusiastic!  In keeping with the excitement about these events, we decided to have a Bingo AGM.  People were eager to have a 2nd bingo night and we thought having a fun AGM this year was just what was needed. 

We shared a wonderful video showcasing our many gatherings of the past year and also a photo slideshow of ICOF employers.  With upbeat music playing and so many good memories shared, the videos couldn't help but make you smile.  We also took a moment to reflect and remember Patti, an ICOF Employer that passed away this past year.  She is sadly missed by all of her network, friends and the LIFE team.

The official AGM business began when Rose Flaig, our Board Chairperson welcomed everyone and presented her report.  Our treasurer, Evelyn Yelinek also presented the 2020 – 2021 audited financial statement that was approved by the membership. 

Patti, our Executive Director presented her annual report, with special acknowledgement to Barb Collerman-Elias for 5 years at Innovative LIFE Options.   Special thanks was also given to the other members LIFE team for their hard work throughout this pandemic and the LIFE Board for their leadership and determination.

Stephen Walker presented nominations for the LIFE Board and shared the 2021 Possibility Grant Winners.  Congratulations to the 2021 recipients.

After the AGM business was complete, we played 4 bingo games!  We had 6 bingo winners who all enthusiastically yelled "BINGO".  It was a lot of fun waiting in anticipation for bingo numbers to be called. 

To close off our AGM, people visited and chatted for a few minutes.    It was great to see so many happy faces all together.  Thank you for attending our 2nd virtual AGM.  We hope to see you all in person next year!
