    Hello – I would like to add my praise to the membership and leaders of Skeena River Metis. Annual general meetings are a necessity for all such non profit groups as we well know from our experience at the Nova Metis Heritage Association in Surrey, BC –

    An active group of dedicated Board of Directors are essential to the success of your society and so we wish you all well for the coming year ahead.Thank you. Ken J. Fisher – President on behalf our Nova Metis members.
