BIA Annual Meeting date set

Our annual meeting will have a different venue this year. Instead of inside at the BIC Center, we will hold the meeting outdoors under a big top tent at the Beaver Island Golf Course. This will let us keep out of the sun, but provide lots of ventilation to help keep us safe from spread of COVID-19. Our agenda will be announced shortly, but for now–please save the date and time : August 11 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Beaver Island Golf Course. Your board looks forward to seeing you there.
