Please post the following on the website for this week:

Room 2-198 at OISE
DATE:  Sat March 22, 11-1pm
LOCATION:  OISE, 252 Bloor Street West, Room 2-198
Topic: HAT's Principles Revisited
Proposer: Richard Dowsett

In 2004, HAT revised the Principles that appear in our constitution.  Ten years on we have some members expressing dissatisfaction with those principles and new members clamoring to know what are principles are. It is vital to have a balanced set of principles that reflect the who, why, what and how of HAT's humanism to energize membership, galvanize group cohesiveness, mold community and stimulate action.
This Forum will discuss the existing principles and explore those of some other humanist groups to better understand what humanism means to ourselves and to others.  We may even explore the value of having principles at all in a group that eschews dogma.
Below are several links that may stimulate your thinking on this subject.
