The Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS) Board of Directors gives a reminder notice that the SFSS Annual General Meeting will be held at 6:30pm on Wednesday, October 27th via Zoom, for the following purposes:

Your vote is important:

The SFSS Membership (yes, that includes you!) entrusts an elected Board of Directors to manage the Society on their behalf. However, the Societies Act, of which the SFSS is governed, requires that certain matters be approved by the Membership at the Annual General Meeting, as the Membership is the highest governing body of the Society.
