Elizabeth Bishop Society of Nova Scotia cancels its 2020 AGM

Due to the covid-19 pandemic and the strict public health measures in place in Nova Scotia and around the world, the EBSNS is cancelling its 2020 Annual General Meeting that would have taken place on 20 June. The Society will post its Financial, Nominating Committee and President's Reports on its website (elizabethbishopns.org) in late June. The society regrets that we will not be able to host our guest speaker Laura Churchill Duke this year, but she will join us in 2021. The society will issue its 2020 newsletter as usual, which will be emailed to members sometime in June. The EBSNS will also announce our plans to shift this year's "Echoes of EB" exhibit and the fund-raiser to one that is virtual. This year's artist is Natallia Povaliayeva. Stay tuned here and on the EBSNS website for future updates. The EBSNS hopes everyone stays safe and well and follows the instructions of public health officials, as we try our best to flatten the curve and mitigate the worst effects of the corona virus. Take good care. EBSNS Board
