    Update to Thursday's agenda
    by Copacs Executive - Tuesday, 22 November 2022, 8:54 PM

    Unfortunately we have to postpone the Indigenous mapping exercise until a later date. A babysitter will still be available during the meeting. We will still have a potluck from 7-7:30. Our MS Teams link will now be running during the meeting. We'll run the virtual MS Teams option as usual (link/info below).


    Hope to see you on Thursday!
