We invite you to attend the NFU-NB’s 2020 Joint Annual General Meeting and Region 1 Convention on Sunday October 18, 2020.  Our AGM will look very different this year – the meeting and presentations will be online. The virtual meeting will consist of NB AGM business that will take place from 1:30pm – 2:30pm: year in review, 2019 financial statements, elections and resolutions. After a short break Region 1 members will be invited to join at 2:45pm for resolutions.

 

Resolutions on current policy issuesmay be presented at the AGM. It is preferable that you send them to us at least one week in advance, but they will also be accepted at the AGM/Convention. Resolutions form the foundation of our policy and guide our work throughout the year. Send resolutions to info@nfunb.org.

 

This event is your opportunity to take on a leadership role with the NFU – elections will be held for the NFU-NB Board of Directorsincluding the President, Women’s President, Youth President, Secretary, and Members-at-Large.

 

Additional virtual content will be available, including a presentation by Darrin Qualman about ‘Tackling the Farm Crisis and Climate Crisis’ report.  A virtual farm tour provided by The Gilbert Family Farm will also be available for viewing.

 

We strongly encourage all members to participate at this Annual General Meeting / Convention; your participation and input is very important to our discussions, which will provide direction for our organization.

 

In NB at this time, we encourage small groups of members (maximum 5 or 6 people) to meet in a members hometo attend the meeting together and discuss. If NB members have limited Internet access or need assistance using technology, NB Public Libraries meeting rooms are available to socially distanced groups. Libraries in larger centres like Moncton, Saint John and Fredericton will be open Sunday the 18th. For those nearer smaller libraries, Internet access is usually available on library grounds even if the library is closed and the meeting will be recorded and saved for those who cannot attend but wish to view later.
