Since it is CiTR’s annual general meeting, there will be conversation about very important information pertaining to the station — it is really ESSENTIAL that members attend.

Once the AGM is completed there will be a volunteer appreciation portion where staff and other leaders at the station acknowledge and give prizes to volunteers who have made exceptional contributions to their departments over the course of the year — aka PARTY!

Food from the Tangent’s menu and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be available to order throughout the evening — we will be staying there all night!
