Gwaii Trust annual meeting Dec. 17

  • Dec. 9, 2005 9:00 a.m.

Broadband for the islands, the SMFRA forestry fund, and a review of Gwaii Trust programs are all on the agenda for the Gwaii Trust Society’s annual general meeting, to be held Saturday afternoon in Sandspit (Dec. 17).
Administrator Tanu Lusignan said the board will also give an update on the new business plan currently being developed. The Gwaii Trust reviews and updates its business plan every five years, and the new plan is scheduled to take effect later in 2006.
Auditors McAlpine and Co. from Terrace will be at the meeting to present the financial statements for the 2004-05 year. Chair Miles Richardson and the eight board members will also be there.
Mr. Lusignan said there are no brand new board members this year. The four members whose terms were up have all been reappointed. They are Willard Wilson of Skidegate, Brad Setso of Old Massett, Ian Hetman of Masset, and Ron McKee of Queen Charlotte.
The meeting is being held in Sandspit because the society rotates its annual general meeting between communities, and this year it was Sandspit’s turn, Mr. Lusignan said.
Everyone is welcome to attend. The meeting starts at 1 pm at the Sandspit community hall.
