Welcome to Alberta 55 plus
LIFELONG FITNESS THROUGH ACTIVE LIVING
AGM and COVID 19 UPDATE
Good morning fellow members,
As Alberta confronts and deals with the covid 19 pandemic, our biggest priority is the health and welfare of our members who are living in this "new normal"... not my favorite euphemism.
Not only is our concern for your physical well being, but we are also concerned about your emotional and social well being too. There are so many challenges that we all face on a daily basis and none of them are to be taken lightly.
On that note, we have made the difficult, but wise, decision to postpone the annual general meeting (AGM) that was planned for Monday, November 9, 2020 in Red Deer. A recent motion was passed by the board to reschedule the AGM until Monday, January 18, 2021 and that this AGM would be a virtual meeting. Of course, we will be using the appropriate and available technology to assist with running the meeting.
Please appreciate that we, as your duly elected Board, know and understand the importance of holding an annual general meeting and it's why we are not canceling the November 9 meeting just postponing it. We want our members to know they have a voice and that their thoughts and opinions matter. It's meetings like these where that gets to occur.
Please visit our website regularly for updates regarding the AGM and any other dates of importance.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all strive to work through this bizarre and often times, concerning pandemic.
Established in 1980, Alberta 55 plus is a not for profit, volunteer-driven group of people. We help mature Albertans enjoy a healthy, vital future through active lifestyle choices. We promote sports and recreation development for all Albertans 55 years of age and older. Our membership includes Albertans from eight different zones of the province. Collectively, we support the Alberta 55 plus Summer/Winter Games and the Canada 55 plus Games.
We divide the province into 8 zones to provide our members with better service.
Each of our 8 zones has an executive and board elected or appointed from established areas in the zone.
Through these zone boards, local needs are identified and addressed by the Provincial Association of Alberta 55 plus.
Note sure which zone represents your area?
