HRA Meetings



Due to the current circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering meetings on a virtual platform. Everyone will have an opportunity to speak. However, we are expecting more people to join than when we held in-person meetings. Therefore, in order to make sure everyone has the chance to express, there will be a limit on speaking time based on the number of members attending. We have space for 25 attendees. First come first serve. There will be a fee for the virtual platform of $10.00 per meeting. Our next meeting will be conducted through Zoom and will be held on Wednesday January 27th from 7:30pm-8:30pm. Meeting ID: 797 9589 9735 Passcode: Yn0Zz7. If you are interested, please email hranyc72@gmail.com for more details, so you can be added to the meeting .
