2017 Annual General Meeting

As a member of SOFREE we encourage you to join us for the SOFREE Annual General Meeting. SOFREE has experienced a decline in membership and attendance at events.  We need your input and, ideally, your help, to keep functioning as an organization.  We want to provide an opportunity for non-believers to enjoy social activities and discussion opportunities with like-minded people.  Perhaps you would like us to play a stronger role, within the confines of a charitable organization, in supporting non-believers in Canada and elsewhere.

This year SOFREE will require both a new president and vice president. Without volunteers, SOFREE will be unable to continue to provide a social community for secular humanists, and support members and other non-believing people in the area when their freedom from religion or their personal well-being is threatened by our religiously dominated society. So please consider volunteering as a member of the SOFREE executive. See our Join Us page for details.

Date and time:
10:30am-noon, Sunday June 18
Huether Hotel, Malt Room
4 King St North, Waterloo
