| VOLUG Home Page | Annual General Meeting - June 1998 |


June 25, 1998 (3 to 4:30 p.m. at Cominco Ltd.)

Twelve members attended the 1997/98 AGM.  The meeting began with a quick

review of the year's activities.  Programming committee members delivered brief

summaries of past sessions and events, and Elizabeth Caskey reported on

our financial status and membership numbers.

The bulk of the AGM was devoted to brainstorming session ideas for the

upcoming year. While a very broad range of topics was proposed, the

Internet once again proved to be the main area of interest.

Attendance for the year (seven sessions, plus AGM) totalled

approximately 310.

Thanks to the programming committee and executives who contributed to

the success of VOLUG this year: Chris Burns, Claudia Chandler, Brent

Gushowaty, Arlene Higgs, Susan Huber, Joy Kirchner, Marilyn Taylor,

Anne Walsh and Elizabeth Caskey.
