2021 AARFP ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

2021 Annual General Meeting, Workshop & Tradeshow April 25-28, 2021 - Red Deer, AB

Our next AGM will be held tentatively on Tuesday, April 27th, in Red Deer, time to be confirmed.

We have been reviewing the program we had set for 2020 to see where changes may be needed for 2021.

Our plan is to try and offer a physical (in person) as well as a virtual conference as we may be still facing restrictions in April.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
