Join us on Sunday, June 21, 2015 for our 2015 Annual General Meeting. Weather permitting, we’ll be having a mid-afternoon BBQ and gathering at our favourite AGM haunt: Third Beach.

Final details (including start-time) will be posted shortly. In the meantime, mark your calendars and plan to join in the fun! There are annual updates to be made – but we do our best to make sure that our AGM is as much beach party as it is business.

Interested in joining the VPSN Board? We’re looking to recruit some top-notch talent to help guide the organization. If you’re interested in taking on a governance or organizational role with VPSN, please get in touch. The VPSN works on a wide variety of public space issues – from the provision of lively open spaces to ensuring strong and sustainable streets and transportation networks. We’re particularly looking for support with the following key portfolios:

  • Privatization & Corporatization – keeping public spaces public
  • Democratic Spaces – enabling more and better civic engagement
  • Parks & Greenspaces – keeping Vancouver green
  • Public Art – covering the creative culture of public space

Our Board work in these and other areas has a strong advocacy focus. Interested candidates should have a good understanding of current policy, programs and stakeholders in these areas – not to mention ideas and enthusiasm for making Vancouver’s public space the best it can be!
