March 22nd AGM & Dinner Postponed and our COVID-19 response
Dear VCCFA members,
With the recent public health advice to make organizational decisions towards ‘social distancing’ to flatten the curve and prevent spread of COVID-19 in Canada, our “in-person” meetings such as the monthly speaker events have been put on hold over the next few months until further notice. This will include the March 22nd AGM. The VCCFA executive team will continue monitor the situation closely. Announcements and updates will be provided on our website.
Here are a few useful links about COVID-19 that we have compiled for your reference:
The CCFS fundraising campaign to purchase medical supplies for hospitals in China has ended on February 23, 2020. We would like to thank you for your support and contribution in this meaningful endeavour.

Please refer to CCFS Fundraising Campaign
