Annual Meeting

The year in review, board elections, a reception, and more

The event includes a slideshow about the Foundation’s fiscal-year activities and achievements from our Board and staff, an update from our UWBG and City partners, the presentation of the Volunteer Legacy Award, and the election of new members to our Board of Directors.

A light reception is held on the terrace of the Graham Visitors Center once the formal proceedings have taken place.
