||Annual General Meeting of The Irish Society/NCR.
Proposed Revision of the Irish Society's Constitution
The Society's proposed revised constitution, incorporating changes recommended over the past couple of years, was sent to all members of The Society in December for review and comment. This was followed by a general membership meeting held at St. Patrick's Basilica on January 14. Those in attendance recommended that the proposed revised constitution be presented to members for their approval at The Society's Annual General Meeting, scheduled for the last week of June.
2014 Annual General Meeting
The Society's next AGM is scheduled for the last week of June. For the past 10+ years, the AGM has been held at St. Patrick's Home on Riverside Drive. With the "new St. Pat's" having opened in January, and the demolition of the old facility scheduled for this Spring, the Board is considering whether to hold The Society's 2014 AGM at St. Pat's or at some other venue - possibly St. Patrick's Basilica. We would appreciate receiving input from members on this topic; please send your comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org,or mail to: Past - President, the Irish Society/NCR, Box 5112, Ottawa, ON K2C 3H4.
