The public is welcome to attend.
Aside from AGM business, CVLLA will launch the 2014 Community Literacy Plan, which highlights four comprehensive literacy goals.
The Plan was created in consultation with literacy and learning stakeholders from multiple organizations, including the School District, LUSH Valley, Lake Trail Community Connections, Creative Employment Access Society, Comox Valley Family Services and others. The Plan highlights opportunities for continued cooperation, collaboration and coordination of literacy programs and services in the Comox Valley.
