2021 Annual General Meeting Notice

Restrictions currently in place regarding Covid-19 have made our traditional AGM format not viable. Therefore AHEIA will be holding the annual general meeting in a revised format this year. As we were unsure when meeting restrictions and advisories would end, we posted previous notices in our publications referring to the fact that this meeting would have to be postponed and restructured to meet with current health authority advice. As gathering numbers and safety protocols currently remain such that in-person attendance is limited, and in the best interests of our member's safety, we will be hosting an online meeting using the "zoom" application.

Zoom Meetings syncs with your calendar system and delivers streamlined enterprise-grade video conferencing from desktop, mobile and dedicated zoom for home devices. You will need to download the app here: Download Zoom

Monday, March 29th at 7:00 pm

Please dial in for an abbreviated meeting, approximately 1 hour or less, to conduct the annual business of the Alberta Hunter Education Instructors Association (AHEIA). We request you sign in using your full name as your screen name to enable us to determine voting privileges.

The zoom meeting link is:

Meeting ID: 821 8729 7148

Passcode: 098095

We look forward to your attendance and if you have any questions please contact our head office in Calgary at 403 252 8474.
