AEN Spring Assembly 2017 - Updated

June 23, 2017 - 7:00pm to 11:00pm

Due to low registration, the Saturday strategy sessions and the Annual General Meeting are postponed until the fall.

You are invited to attend the 2017 Alberta Environmental Network Spring Assembly. This gathering is a great opportunity for ENGOs to get together, connect, and collaborate on strengthening the environmental movement in Alberta. With an increase of staff capacity in the form of our new Executive Director, the time is now for the AEN to strategically reorganize, reinvigorate, and grow the AEN. The Assembly is an opportunity for AEN members to discuss strategies and provide direction to the Network to ensure that its programs and activities provide clear and significant support to Alberta ENGOs' efforts to preserve and protect the environment. The Annual General Meeting of the Alberta Environmental Network Society will be held in conjunction with the Spring Assembly.

Unless otherwise noted, all events take place in the Aurora Room at the Lister Centre on the University of Alberta North (Main) Campus.
