lt has been a banner year for SILT and Savary Island. With the support of the Friends of Savary, the Savary community and The Nature Trust of BC, the Heart of the Island was saved. This was the reason for our beginnings as a Land Trust. We have grown in many ways since we were established in 1997 and will continue to develop and serve conservation on Savary Island.
Our AGM will be at the Main Fire Hall on Monday August 6 at 11am. I hope you are able to come out and hear about SILT”s work this year. I am pleased to tell you that Dr. Jasper Lament, Executive Director of The Nature Trust of BC will be speaking at the AGM.
Our board has been working to update the Constitution and Bylaws with the support of a lawyer specializing in non profits and societies. The board will be recommending changes to our Constitution and Bylaws in order for SILT to make the transition to the new Societies act requirements in November. A copy of the draft will be sent to you next week.
