2016 Annual General Meeting
On behalf of the board, I would like to thank all the members who participated in the 2016 AGM. We had a great turn out this year, having 55 members attend at Dalhousie and 71 members attend via Adobe connect, for a total of 126 members, which equates to 25% of the membership.
This year, we had 12 offsite gatherings across the province, with each site having between 12 to 2 members, along with all the individuals who connected, made the Adobe Connect a success. We did have a glitch in our system and unfortunately our power point presentation was not able to be accessed, so I am including the presentation here for your perusal.
I would like to welcome our two new Board members Christine Bray and Jocelyn Brown, we look forward to working with you in September.
I would also like to congratulate the following attendance draw winners:
Ellen Johnson – Adobe Connect
Lynn Sheehan – Dalhousie
