YWIM Board Meeting

Westmark Whitehorse, Whitehorse

Find out what's happening at YWIM - Attend our next board meeting !!! The Yukon Women in Music board holds meetings every month or so, but this next one is extra special. We thought this would be a great time to invite our membership to an open meeting of the board, to get to know your board members, learn more about upcoming projects, bring your ideas to the table, and find out how to become more involved.  Our next meeting is Wednesday May 9th, at the Westmark Whitehorse.  We'll start with some socializing with a 'meet & greet' at 530 pm, followed by the business meeting itself at 6 pm. Appies will be provided.  We look forward to seeing you there!

We need some new energy and ideas to carry us through the next few years. The commitment would be no more than a meeting a month, and committee meetings for our events.
