Hello YKCC Members!

Annual General Meeting

Date: Wednesday, November 30th
When: 6 PM
Where: Library Meeting Room
Eats: Free pizza

The AGM is where we elect board members for the upcoming year, vote on club policy, and decide the club’s direction for the upcoming year. We’ll also be discussing progress on the new climbing wall at the Fieldhouse, and how you can help make it a reality.

It’s important that all members who are able come to the meeting, but we have a proxy form below if you can’t make it. But if you don’t make it, you don’t get pizza…

Did we mention that there will be free pizza?

See you there!
