February 17 & 18, 2021
BFO’s 2021 annual general meeting (AGM), appropriately themed “Leading Through Uncertainty”, will be hosted virtually. The AGM will be held over two days in the afternoons of February 17 and 18. The usual business activities of the association will be presented and reviewed by voting delegates, including the financials and resolutions, but the mechanics of the meeting will operate differently. Elections for BFO director positions and BFO committees will be conducted in advance by the voting delegates, and a vote to ratify the election results will be presented at the AGM.
