Show Your Colours Virtual Mosh

Saturday, June 5, 2:00 – 4:00 PM

It’s June and that means Pride Month! It’s always one of the most colourful months with rainbows and colourful flags everywhere. Our virtual mosh will be no different!

June’s mosh will kick off Pride in fashion (literally), and give you a chance to represent your flag. Dress up in the colours of your flag of choice (or pick just one colour if you don’t have them all). Whether it’s blue, pink, and white; pink, purple, and blue; or the full rainbow, show your Pride and represent your colours!

Of course, gear is admired and never required, but having fun is! 

We start at 2:00 PM on Saturday, June 5. Click the link below to join.

Board of Directors Nominations

The current VAN-PAH Directors were appointed during 2020 and as such, their term will shortly be coming to an end.

New members are needed to step up to be on the board and help represent the membership while handling the day to day operations of VAN-PAH.

If you would like to be considered to be a Director of VAN-PAH, please send an email to vanpah@gmail.com. Please include your full legal name, why you would like to be a Director, and what skills you can bring to the organization.

All candidates will be vetted by the 2021 Nominations Committee before being presented to the membership prior to the AGM.

Please be aware that all potential nominee’s names will be communicated to the VAN-PAH membership as part of the election process leading up to the AGM later this year.


2021 Membership Renewals

Bark! As we all know, this pandemic has been quite a strain. Last year we introduced a $0 membership renewal option that was available through the end of 2020. As information has changed and developed we would like to announce an extension of our $0 member renewals. This extension will be tied to Phase 4 of BC’s restart plan.

VAN-PAH Members with renewal dates between March 2020 and the day that we enter Phase 4 of BC’s Restart Plan will be eligible for $0 renewals.

Please be sure to renew as soon as possible as you will need to rejoin and the regular $20 if your membership is expired for more than 6 months.

As always, any eligible member can choose to pay for their renewal instead if desired.

*There will be a 30 day grace period after we enter Phase 4 for members with renewal dates in that range to take advantage of the renewal


Note on 2021 Annual General Meeting

Every calendar year VAN-PAH must hold an annual general meeting. Last year, this meeting was held at PumpJack Pub in January, however, the current pandemic has complicated matters and will prevent us from holding an in-person AGM this year.

As you know, we recently held an extraordinary general meeting to approve bylaw changes that would allow for online AGMs. These changes will also allow elections and other important votes to be conducted online.

This will be a first for VAN-PAH and will require some research and time to implement. Our 2021 directors election will begin as soon as we find a reliable election platform, and the AGM will be held at the end of that election period. We are working to begin this process as soon as possible.

We will be announcing the date for the 2021 AGM shortly. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
