Lunch Meet - Abbott St - 2012

UPDATE: In the event that the weather on Wednesday is rainy (or greyish and likely to rain) we’ve booked Meeting Room #2 on the first floor of Creekside Community Centre (1 Athletes Way, Olympic Village).

Our upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at 6:00pm. As a registered non-profit, we use this meeting to review our previous year’s work (2017 fiscal year), discuss the plan for 2018-19, and elect our Board of Directors.

We also like to use the event as an excuse for a old-fashioned picnic in the park… and we’ll be holding court in one of the city’s excellent greenspaces with some picnic goodies. This year’s AGM will be taking place at Hinge Park. We’ll meet near the stone circle/seating area (mid-park).

Interested in joining the Board? Our Directors are responsible for governance issues related to the Network – shaping organizational positions, and helping to manage projects of varying sorts.

In related news, we are also looking for additional support in some key areas. Board membership isn’t a requirement to take a leadership/coordination role with one the following portfolio areas, but we are looking for people with practical experience and demonstrable subject matter expertise.

  • Streets as places
  • Open space (park and plaza) design
  • Pedestrian issues
  • Civic buildings

For more information on the Board of Directors and/or coordinator roles, please email Paola Qualizza, Chair, at paola [at] vancouverpublicspace.ca
