Due to the increases in Covid-19 cases due to the Delta variant and re-imposition of Covid regulations in the Central Okanagan, the Okanagan Branch Executive regretfully announces that the 2021 Okanagan Branch AGM will be held virtually instead of in-person. While not ideal, holding the AGM virtually will allow members who live in all areas of the Branch’s geographic area to participate. The Branch Executive looks forward to having as many members as possible participate in this important Okanagan Branch event.
