We invite EHC collaborators, members, and guests to our 2016 Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, May 11th, 2016!
Please join in celebrating an active and exciting year in local heritage that saw many new projects, collaborations, and conversations inspired by our city’s story. The heritage sector and local communities are building stronger connections and forming many new connections around a shared appreciation for Edmonton’s heritage and culture. The AGM is an opportunity to reflect on heritage over the past year and for Edmontonians to make connections for the future.
At the AGM, we’ll provide an update on EHC initiatives and organizational work, feature a few of the many dynamic projects underway in the city and, importantly, current EHC members will vote for 2016 Board of Directors.
