Good morning, Friend

Today will be an email-heavy day from the regional office!

It's our regular Community Connections day - Alexandra will send that later today, and - breaking all e-newsletter rules - I'm adding in two more mailings! (I know, I know, lol). 

First is this one you're reading now, about the Financial Forum and Submitting Proposals in advance of the general meeting in two weeks. Second, News of Note will land a little later on, with important Office Updates and News. (I thought about putting ALL the updates, info and news into one email -- but it would be very long! Personally, I like emails being topic-specific because it makes searching my Inbox, and forwarding specific details easier. Consider this an informal poll: What's your preference? Let me know.)

Thank you, as always, for taking a few minutes to read this General Meeting 2023 information.

PS. The image above is the Lithop succulent, known also as Living Stone plant! An internet search will bring up all kinds of posts about this incredible part of God's creation.

Two Time Sensitive Invitations: 

If you do not plan to attend the PMR General Meeting in two weeks, you might not need any of the information below … though you may end up chatting with a friend or colleague who's going to Abbotsford, or someone who's curious about this kind of information!


Finances, Proposals

  1. All are welcome to sign up for the Thursday May 25 online gathering, FINANCIAL FORUM, hosted by the region’s executive and finance team. Details on what will be covered in this efficient Zoom meeting, as well as how to get access, can be found here
  2. The online form used to SUBMIT PROPOSALS to the regional council and executive is ready to be used!
