Information updated June 18, 2012
Carp Halton Chapter extends a very special invitation to all CARP members and friends. Please join us on June 26th, 2012 from 6.00pm to 9.00pm for our Annual General Meeting as we celebrate our 19th successful year.
The meeting will be held in the Auditorium at the Halton Regional Centre, 1151 Bronte Road in Oakville. The Regional Centre is located just north of the QEW.
Given the excellent support of Chapter activities this year we are planning an even bigger and more exciting AGM. The Auditorium is a larger room than last year. This will minimize congestion at the door and allow space for our sponsors (see below).
If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by email [email protected] or call us at 905 319 7345. This will help us to accommodate everyone when placing the order for refreshments.
Doors will open at 6.00pm and the main meeting will begin at 7.00pm.. Light refreshments will be available and Aidan Purnell will entertain us with his easy listening style of music. For more information about Aidan and his music please go to his website at www.purnellmusic.com.
As a courtesy to our speakers, and the audience, people arriving after 7.00pm cannot be accommodated. For your safety, and in accordance with the local fire code, building capacity requirements will be respected.
Keynote speakers from CARP National will include Ross Mayot, Vice President Community Development, and Michael Nicin, Policy Development and Government Relations Officer. Michael will talk about the major issues in advocacy this year, including the OAS issue and Advocacy’s “new vision for aging at home”.
Light refreshments including coffee and cookies will be available.
