The Victoria AGM was held on January 7, 2016.
Ali Grovue, BCSEA Executive Director, kicked off the meeting describing the overall provincial status of BCSEA, and the connection to the local chapters. Marion Pape, Chair of the Victoria Chapter, then gave an overview of last year's work and introduced the 2016 steering committee. Denise Stocco then gave a short-but-sweet overview of the finances for Victoria Chapter.
Finally, Kai Nagata, Communications Director at Dogwood Initiative, rounded out the evening with a poignant and inspirational talk on the importance of having power and choice in order for people to make changes towards the future they desire. He facilitated an excellent discussion throughout!
The ideas discussed were brought forward to the steering committee's retreat where the Victoria Chapter's main focus in 2016 was determined.
