Just a reminder that our AGM is on Thursday, March 14, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, at Dwell (on 13 St N, right across from Tim Horton's - map here). Here is a tentative schedule for the evening:
6:00 to 6:30 | We will carry out official AGM business, including elections to our executive/other positions and going over our 2018 financial statement. We'll also briefly highlight some upcoming projects for 2019. If you'd like to get involved with the Chapter, please make sure you attend this portion.
6:30 to 7:00 | Time to chat before our hearing this year's guest speakers. There will be a cash bar with beer and wine for sale (with thanks to Andrew Hilton Wines and Spirits).
7:00 to 8:15 | Guest Speakers (Kevin Van Tighem, Erik Cline)
Erik Cline is a graduate student at the University of Lethbridge and our 2019 Oldman River Chapter Research in Conservation Scholarship recipient. Erik will give a short talk on his research, which involves identifying populations of pure Westslope Cutthroat Trout.
Kevin Van Tighem is a renowned author, conservationist, and former superintendent of Banff National Park. We are very excited to have Kevin speak at our AGM this year! His presentations are both informative and entertaining, so if you haven't been to one of his talks, this is your chance!
A few additional notes. Admittance is free with a current TUC membership (which also confers voting privileges - you can join/renew here and will be given the option of affiliating yourself with our chapter) or $10 at the door (cash only). All proceeds from the door will be donated to Yellowstone to Yukon in honour of chapter member Murray Dueck, who passed away this year. There will be beer and wine for sale (cash only).
