Branch Reports

May 24, 2024 Update 


The Branch 2024 AGM was held on April 16 at the Aurora Legion, where we conducted our necessary business of the year – financial reports and elections, followed by a presentation on Wealth Investment and Wealth Transfer by Jason Green, a CIM Investment Advisor with RBC Dominion Securities.

Branch AGM 2024.

In person attendance was down a bit, but with those who came in by Zoom the crowd was close to average overall. The Aurora Legion Hall was comfortable with fewer sound problems than In the past. The Branch is doing fine financially, though we suffered fraudulent attacks on our bank account in the fall, from which we are just recovering. Customer vigilance seems to be the only defense: the banks don’t verify withdrawals as well as we’d like. We welcomed Keith Chang to the Branch Board – very welcome new blood as succession is a real problem facing all Branches.

 Our very long-time secretary is stepping down in that role, while remaining on the Board for the present. Ed received a Federal Retirees award – a President’s Commendation for Exceptional Service for all this work for York Board over these many years – presented by Tom Nichols
