Annual Meeting Updates

Nov 03, 2020

Virtual Annual Meeting

Due to the current pandemic, Premier will not be holding our traditional in-person annual meeting in January. Instead, Premier plans to host a virtual update meeting in January which will include a 2020 financial review, reports from the CEO and board chairman, scholarship selections and more. As this will not be an official annual meeting, all board of director positions and terms will be stayed over for one year. More information and instructions on how to join this virtual meeting will be available in the coming months.
