The NWTRPA’s Annual General Meeting is *typically* held during the Annual Conference, as all of our members would already be gathered together in one community it’s the perfect time to hold it. Without an Annual Conference this year, the NWTRPA is still hosting an AGM for members—but virtually.

The AGM is an opportunity for NWTRPA members to get involved in shaping recreation in the territory by electing new board members* and voting on association business.

Where:  GoToMeeting
Date: November 26, 2020
Time: 12:00 pm (Noon) – 1:00 pm

You must register before 12 pm (Noon) on November 25 to attend the virtual AGM. We encourage you to register now so you don’t forget!
