2018 Annual General Meeting Report
On Friday, June 8th, Saskatchewan welcomed more than 60 Opimian Area Representatives, Hall of Famers, staff, and members from across the country for the 45th Annual and Special General Meeting (AGSM).
The 2018 AGM included a Special Meeting to approve By-Law No. 1 – 2018 and to adopt resolutions of regularization to confirm all prior resolutions, by-laws, decisions and acts taken by the board of directors. All items on the AGSM Agenda were approved by the membership.
This year marked the final year on the Board of Directors for members Bill Podolsky (Winnipeg, MB) and Gerry Armstrong (Victoria, BC). Although their shoes will be difficult to fill, Opimian is pleased to welcome Twyla Laakso (Calgary, AB), John Birdgeneau (Calgary, AB) and David Conway (St. John’s, NL) to the Board.
The 2018 AGSM also marked the 4th and final occasion where the AGM would be chaired by Opimian’s President and Chair Lois-Anne Brebner. She will remain on the Board for one more year as Past Chair providing guidance and insights to the newly elected President and Chair, Paul Reimer.
During her remarks Lois-Anne expressed her gratitude to Opimian for the privilege of serving as President and Chair and thanked the dedicated directors and staff who supported her during the past four years.
Opimian wants to thank all members who turned out for this wonderful occasion and look forward to seeing you next year in Kitchener, Ontario.
