May 2, 2016 Newsletter

We had a successful AGM on Sunday.

We reviewed some of the highlights of the past year and Colin presented our financial position. Thanks to our generous supporters and members, we've managed to turn our 2014 deficit into a small surplus for 2015!

We said goodbye to Kirsten who is stepped down from the board. With Goldis, she will continue to host the book club though. We also welcomed Anna d'Archangelo and Dan Hanna to the board.

We're looking forward to working with our new board toward an even greater BCHA through 2016.

Aron Ra event

Perhaps the most famous atheist from Texas is Aron Ra. He's best known for his scathing critiques of creationist arguments on YouTube.

He'll be at Yagger's Downtown on Saturday evening for dinner and drinks from 6pm. There are no planned remarks, just a chance for a casual social evening with other Humanists.

Space is limited so please RSVP on our website if you plan on attending.
