Comox Valley Humanists host inaugural AGM

The fledgling Comox Valley Humanists group will hold its inaugural annual general meeting this Saturday.

The fledgling Comox Valley Humanists group will hold its inaugural annual general meeting this Saturday.

The CVH meet at 10 a.m. upstairs in the Driftwood Mall Quality Foods — turn right at the top of the stairs in QF’s A Step Above, carry on through the shop to the meeting room at the east end.

The CV Humanists have been holding regular lively meetings over the past year, discussing and learning about a wide range of issues including politics, GMOs, media, religion, and spirituality, all from a humanist perspective.

Members from Campbell River, the Comox Valley and Qualicum are looking forward to the AGM as an opportunity to shape the direction of the group. Will it continue as a discussion and social group, assume a more active role in the community, or take on a new form?

The group executive will be selected during the meeting, and all members are encouraged to attend. Members of the public are welcome and memberships will be available at the meeting.
