CRA AGM: This year’s CRA AGM is on Monday, February 24th. The Agenda is attached.
CRA Membership Renewals: Renewals are due 1 February, 2003. As a voluntary organization the CRA depends on the loyal support of its 200 plus members. We look forward to the annual inundation of renewal forms from those members who have not yet renewed. Thanks to the many who have already done so.
Greetings and best wishes for 2003!
