LGBT Youth Line's AGM - Sept 20th @ 6:30 pmPlease join LGBT Youth Line for our Annual General Meeting (AGM)!
The AGM is our annual event dedicated to reviewing the past year at Youth Line, and outlining plans for the following year. It is also the time when all community members can participate in the process of determining what Youth Line represents and what Youth Line does – for example, by voting to elect members to the Board of Directors, and on updates to the organizational bylaws.
Everyone is welcome to join us! We also encourage those who plan on attending to sign up for their annual Youth Line membership*, which entitles them to participate in the AGM as a voting member.
