On April 29th, 2019 the MST members present at the Annual General Meeting voted to confirm the proposal of the Board of Directors to transition the Mycological Society of Toronto to a nonprofit corporation under the Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act.
This transition included a new set of bylaws, which can be found on the MST Policies page.
We are very pleased to announce that our Spring Mushroom Dinner will be held on Monday, May 27th at our favourite Piatto Restaurant.
