Nick J. Mulé, Secretary
On behalf of the CLGRO Steering Committee


Steering Committee Meeting, Toronto January 10, 2009

Although the minutes from the September 6, 2008 Steering Committee were approved, the agenda for this meeting was restricted primarily to discussion for recommendations regarding the future of CLGRO.

Nick Mulé submitted the proposal “Dissolution of CLGRO, Creation of a New Queer Voice in Ontario” and a summary sheet, both of which are available on the CLGRO website. This would be a new project which CLGRO launches and may be able to help fund. The recommendation that CLGRO dissolve will be taken to a special general meeting on May 2, 2009.
