n Tuesday, May 12, 2015, noon-1:30 at the Courtenay Quality Foods

The Comox Valley Social Planning Society is holding its 17th Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, May 12, 2015, noon-1:30 at the Courtenay Quality Foods (upstairs meeting room) located in the Driftwood Mall.

The meeting will begin with two presentations.

The first presentation will be from the Comox Valley Community Foundation. Executive director Rebecca Christie will introduce the group to the Vital Signs Reports that have been produced in other communities. The CVC Foundation would like to partner with the CVSPS and other community groups to produce such a report for the Comox Valley.

The second presentation will be about the Vancouver Island Community Investment Co-operative.

“Launched in the fall of 2014 through the auspices of the Greater Victoria Community Planning Council, the intention of the co-operative is to provide an investment vehicle for people wanting to support local projects with their investment dollars,” said presenter Pam Munroe. “Money invested in the co-op will be used for projects on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands that build and manage supportive/affordable housing or provide loans to entrepreneurs with socially responsible businesses,” she concludes.

Following the presentations the Annual General Meeting and election of officers will be held.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Light snacks will be served. Please RSVP to 5779bunny@gmail.com so we can plan accordingly. For more information email that address or call 250-335-2003.
