Run as a candidate for our Board of Directors

If you are considering getting involved with our clinic, the Annual General Meeting provides a great opportunity to learn more about the clinic and its activities. You do not need to be a member of the clinic to attend, although only registered members of the clinic will be eligible to vote in the election of new community board members. It is usually held in November. Call us for details.
