Saturday, September 19th …Virtually
We are facing many challenges in this new environment that has been imposed upon us by COVID19. The mandated social distancing requirements advised by health authorities in the spring have helped but positive cases continue to rise, and are now impacting remote areas that were once considered to be very safe. We must change ways of our operations to ensure we reduce the risk of exposure to our members, friends, and families. We all must adopt new strategies to accomplish the tasks/activities of the Prairie Region of Photographic Arts (PRPA) regional association now and in the future.
I appreciate that change is difficult. With the number of infected individuals on the rise with the reopening of businesses and activities, PRPA must show leadership and care for our membership by taking the necessary steps to minimize risk of possible exposure with unnecessary travel and gatherings to regions outside our immediate circle. Taking everything into consideration the decision has been made that the Fall Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be conducted through Zoom. We will not be meeting face to face.
The virtual AGM will ensure our association is following all the recommendations by health officials as we continue to fight this battle.
The meeting will be on Saturday September 19, starting at 1:00 pm in AB & SK, 2:00 in MB. A link to the meeting will be emailed 30 days prior to the meeting, and a reminder sent out shortly before the meeting date. The agenda, minutes of the 2019 AGM, and reports are being mailed.
