Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 NWTRPA Virtual Annual General Meeting



Our AGM is an opportunity for NWTRPA members to get involved in shaping recreation in the territory by electing new board members, reviewing audited financial statements, and voting on important association business.


About the Event:

Join us at the 2023 Virtual AGM to learn more about what the NWTRPA achieved over the last year. This year, the NWT faced many evacuation alerts and orders, creating a challenging summer filled with displaced people due to wildfires. As a result, the 2023 Conference has been postponed to October 2024 in Sǫ̀mba K’è / Yellowknife; however, our AGM will be hosted online, offering our Members across the territory the opportunity to connect and vote for new Directors. Where: Virtually. A link will be sent to registered guests on the morning of November 15 with a password to join the Virtual AGM. Date: November 15, 2023 Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM (MDT) Who: Open to the Public. NOTE: Only Members can vote on NWTRPA business and Board Elections. There will also be prizes!
