We are a ‘society’!

Aug 10th, 2007 | By | Category: Updates

We now have official society status! On Tuesday, August 7, 2007, I received the paperwork from the British Columbia provincial government confirming that we are now an authorized society. Our official name is the Africa Village Project Association.

We can now open a bank account as a society and officially accept donations for the Project. We have some plans for fundraising, and Charleen McBeath, the assistant director of the Project, is in charge of this. Announcements about fundraising events will be posted on the website to keep you up to date.

To get society status, we were required to form a board of directors, which is in charge of running the association and making sure that the provincial laws are followed. Here are the board members: Sheena Ashdown, Dale Hamilton, Charleen McBeath, Robert Trowhill, and Valerie Neil. If you would like to get in touch with any of us, you will find our email addresses by clicking on “Contact Us” in the main menu of the website.
