TUCC's First AGM Representing Four Regional Council Areas took place in June 2019
On June 13th, 2019 TUCC held its Annual General Meeting at St. Andrew’s United Church (Georgetown). The meeting took place within the bounds of Horseshoe Falls Regional Council, one of the four new regional councils TUCC seeks to serve following the recent restructuring within the United Church of Canada. Attended by two regional council Executive Ministers and new members of the TUCC corporation nominated by Shining Waters, East Central Ontario, Western Ontario Waterways, and Horseshoe Falls Regional Councils, the meeting was an opportunity to learn from one another and introduce TUCC’s work to a broader audience. Photos from the meeting have been posted to TUCC’s facebook page.
