ALP Annual General Meeting 2018
All producers are invited to ALP’s inaugural AGM. This event will boast numerous speakers on a variety of topics, networking opportunities, elections, trade fair, food and drinks. More information will be announced soon but mark your calendars!
Saturday, November 3, Royal Executive Inn, Leduc
This one AGM will replace the Zone Meetings that we previously held around the province. The ALP Board initiated these changes in 2016 and producers voted on them at the 2016 Zone Meetings. Previously, ALP hosted 5-7 Zone Meetings every fall throughout the province. Each Zone Meeting came at a cost of approximately $3000 and producer attendance at these meetings steadily decreased to the situation where sometimes there was not quorum (which was 7 eligible producers). With decreased access to government funding, the ALP Board seriously examined whether spending $3000 on seven eligible producers was an effective use of producer check-off. Holding one AGM allows us to bring in more speakers on more topics of interest to producers. ALP can move this AGM to different areas of the province each year. Directors are always available on the phone or email to discuss any concerns that producers have at any time of the year.
