The Wetaskiwin and District Chamber of Commerce, like most organizations, is required to hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM is an opportunity for members to contribute to the direction and representation of the Chamber for the upcoming year. This is the time new board members will be elected and any new bylaws will be passed. So is an AGM viewed as a review of the past year or the beginning of the new year?
Judi Best, Executive Director of the Wetaskiwin and District Chamber of Commerce, is introducing a new format for the AGM on Tuesday, March 25, 2014; Old Way – Annual General Meeting, New Way – Spring Session.
“We invite you, our members, to attend the 1st Spring Session replacing the Annual General Meeting format. Our Spring Session will be a little more than a half day and filled with inspiration and innovation. This is a MUST ATTEND event for members, businesses, tourism, city and county councillors, and your staff and management.”
“During our Spring Session, there will be a short meeting to present our annual reports and hold an election, before heading into 2 concurrent sessions and a key note speaker. You will discover how to build leadership strategies, effects of humour in the work place, the Chamber of Commerce Group Benefits key features and the NEW Group Retirement Plan you may not be aware of.
The Chamber will also be launching an all new Wetaskiwin’s Business Awards Program where, “we will be celebrating business in our community year round. Meet the Wetaskiwin businesses that will be graduating and receiving their certification from the Recommended Experience Business Program.”
The Chamber’s Spring Session is being planned to provide opportunities for business people to connect with other Chamber members, city and county councillors, and businesses during the networking breaks and lunch. SO…block your Calendar for Tuesday, March 25, 2014 from 8:30 – 2:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you at our 1st Spring Session.
