This year’s Annual General Meeting was held on June 19, 2017.

Not only is our AGM an important part of the democratic life of our organization, it also provides a great opportunity for our members to hear about the vital and diverse work that has been carried out by Public Interest Alberta.

Executive Director Joel French and Board President Larry Booi reported on the efforts and achievements of staff and task force volunteers throughout 2016 and 2017.

Jonathan Teghtmeyer, Board Treasurer, reported on the sound financial situation of the organization.

Representatives from each task force – Child Care and Early Learning, Democracy, Education, Environment, Human Services and Poverty, Post- Secondary Education, and Seniors – reported on their comprehensive efforts in creating the Priorities for Change document that will be published in the fall.

Thank you to all who attended.
