What is an AGM, and why should you attend?

An annual general meeting is a meeting of members (employers) of Service Hospitality. Service Hospitality is a safety association funded by members as part of the levy on your WCB premiums. During the AGM, members review Service Hospitality’s performance and discuss future strategies and business items to ensure you receive the information, services and support you need.

It is also an opportunity to discuss and approve the audited financial statements and ask questions. At the AGM, you will meet and network with other members, your Board of Directors, and Service Hospitality’s team of experts. Come and let us know if you are receiving a return on investment from being a member.
