PAPNM’s Bylaws require us to hold an annual meeting each year to present our Annual Financial Report and any other business deemed appropriate. It has also been traditionally the time that we elect our new Board members for the upcoming year. Because of the election, it is important for us to have a quorum of our membership to be able to hold the meeting. For this reason, we try to make it a fun and enjoyable social time for us to gather and get to know one another (door prizes included)!
