Past Even, AGM

Our annual meeting was held on Sunday, February 19th  3:00 pm. at BC Children's Hospital with a total of 18 attending, including the board members. Sera Sammarco, the President, presented group activities in the past year and then Wilson Ma, Treasurer, provided financial report and budget for the next year. The financial report was passed by the attending members. We also had a productive discussion of the future of the group moving forward.  The general consensus was to focus on three areas:

1) Patient needs (this should come from the patients)
2) Parent’s needs (awareness and newest developments from the medical field)
3) Closer collaboration with hospital staff and doctors

Next new Board of Directors was elected (please refer to BOD page) and AGM meeting was adjourned at 5:00 pm.
