The Toronto Club will be welcoming members back to another live event at the Kortright Centre on Sunday April 21, 2024. We know you won’t want to miss it! The theme for our A.G.M. is ‘A Sense of Belonging’.
The AGM offers an opportunity to hike before the meeting, learn about Club activities, hear from our dynamic guest speaker (see below) see old friends and make new ones, ask questions, explore volunteer opportunities, and wander the grounds of the lovely Kortright Centre.
After the morning hikes, a full lunch is offered. Check-in is at 11:00 a.m. with lunch at 11:45 a.m. Then you’ll proceed to the auditorium at 1 p.m. for the Annual Meeting.
