Our AGM will provide an opportunity to learn about HAT and what we have accomplished over the past year. There will be updates provided by HAT staff on our many programs, as well as a chance to meet the board and mingle with fellow members and supporters. It's an excellent place to join in on the conservation conversation, especially in the social hour before the meeting and presentations begin.
Doors open at 6:30pm, and the meeting and presentations run from 7:00-8:30pm. The event will be complete with light snacks, refreshments, as well as the chance to support HAT's conservation work further by becoming a member.
This event is free and open to all, and you are encouraged to bring a friend! Come and see how we are working to conserve the local environment!
