A Busy Month Ahead!

Reminder – Town Hall on Monday, October 21st at 7 pm!

 

Join us at Trout Lake Community Centre for the Community Visioning Town Hall – and visit the Facebook event in advance to let us know what topics are most important to you. The town hall is an opportunity to discuss your feedback and vision for BitF – members of the GVIAS Board, Production Team and Grants Committee will be present to hear your thoughts.

 

We will used an amended, Robert’s Rules style format, to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to speak. Topics will be posted in the order of importance as ranked from the Facebook event, plus new topics can still be added. Each attendee will tick off each topic to which they wish to speak. The moderator will allocate time to each topic, based on the tick marks. For each topic, those who wish to speak will be invited to stand – each person will be given a pre-determined amount of time to speak (between 1-2 minutes, depending on the topic), and can sit once done.
