BSC MEMBERS DIGEST -- November 8, 2021

Fall 2021 General Membership Meeting Sunday, November 21, 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Hi Members,

The General Membership Meeting (GMM) has been scheduled for Sunday, November 21, from 3:00p.m. to 6:30p.m. PDT

The GMM is an opportunity for members to hear the latest update from the Board and to offer their feedback and guidance on next steps that the BSC as a whole should take. This Fall, we will also be brainstorming items and objectives to include for the 2021-2024 Strategic Plan.

General Membership Meeting Agenda.

In preparation, please also fill out the following Pre-GMM survey. This survey will be useful for offering feedback even if you can't attend the GMM itself. We will try to offer CI hours for completing the survey!

To participate, please join via the following Zoom link: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/86019782767

Come when you can, leave when you must!

Sincerely,

Rafael Grillo
