LCS Annual General Meeting
August 20, 2020
10 AM, LCS Courtyard
NOTE: Please RSVP to email@example.com if you plan to attend, so that we can prepare meeting materials and arrange seating to assure compliance with social distancing regulations.
Each year you, our members, have the opportunity to hear directly from the board of Directors at this annual event. This is a moment to learn about the work LCS has accomplished in the last year, as well as our plans for the future. This year the AGM will feature an update on the Campus redevelopment plans and how LCS is moving forward. This is a project that the Campus committee and board have been engaged in for the last several years. We are very interested in sharing this with you and would like you to attend the meeting and be a part of that process.
The membership has a voice, and it is at the AGM that you can share your voice. Hope to see you there!

LCS Members only. Membership must be current.
Cultural shock is a normal part of life when we move to another country whose habits are different, we have to observe and learn thelocal rules of urbanity, what body language issues are appropriate and which are not.
Why the behavior of the inhabitants of the new place is different. What do local people expect from me as a new inhabitant of the area?What phrases should I use and at what times? What should I understand about the time structure of the local people so different from mine?Why are the procedures with the authorities so complicated? And a long etc.
Our intention is to help you understand these basic and necessary questions for the real and adequate coexistence with my new neighbors.
Another way to know Mexico.
