Join us Sunday, January 21, 2024 at 7:00pm Pacific for the annual general meeting of Transformation Communities.
In addition to helping us meet our legal requirements as a non-profit corporation in the state of Washington, this is an opportunity for us to report on our development as a hub of missional communities, and to take care of business matters, including the ratification of our Guiding Board, and approval of some minor bylaws amendments (see below).
All people connected with Transformation Communities are invited to attend this online meeting. Note, however, that only members of one of our recognized communities may vote in the meeting (see details below).
Here’s the connection information for the meeting:
