2015 AEN Fall Cross Caucus Meetings

Nov 28 2015 (All day) - Nov 29 2015 (All day)

The fall cross-caucus meeting is an opportunity for all the AEN caucuses and working groups to come together as a community and discuss strategies to move our collective concerns forward. It is also a chance to meet with your fellow-caucus members face-to-face.

Purpose & Goals

We are six months into the first new government in Alberta in 40 years. This change represents an opportunity to review the Network’s strategies and tactics, and determine how we can best support our members in advancing their key issues. 

On Day 1, the morning sessions are intended to share information and gather intelligence about the key issues and priorities of both government and of AEN members, and to identify opportunities for action. The afternoon sessions will be more in-depth discussions of key issues and priorities as identified in the morning.

On Day 2, the AEN Board will review the Strategic Plan, and identify gaps arising from the Day 1 conversations, and work on previously and newly-identified priority actions. All AEN Members are welcome to attend and participate.
