Another year has passed and it’s time once again for the IBBY Canada Annual Meeting of Members (AMM). Come out and join us for the morning of February 27th to meet the outgoing and incoming executive board, to catch up on what IBBY Canada has accomplished over the past year, to vote on upcoming changes and to learn about what we’re looking forward to in 2016!
The meeting will take place at the Northern District Library (40 Orchard View Blvd, Toronto, ON M4R 1B9). Coffee and membership renewal will take place at 9:30am. The meeting will follow at 10am to 12pm.
We’ll be announcing the winner of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian Picture Book Award and discussing IBBY Canada’s exciting activities and involvements from 2015—like the IBBY Silent Book Exhibit which toured Canada!
The AMM is a great opportunity meet with like-minded folks (adults who never quite grew up and still believe in the power of story), to talk about Canadian children’s literature and how IBBY Canada is involved, or who would like to become involved in the international world of children’s literature and literacy.
IBBY Canada is always seeking new membership, so if you know someone who might like to get involved please pass this message on. Furthermore, if you or someone you know would like to become more involved with IBBY Canada, either on the board or with a special project, please join us at the AMM or send us an email inquiry or suggestion to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that, while all are welcome, in order to vote at the AMM you have to be a current member in good standing. You can renew your membership at any time online. We will also be renewing membership in person at the AMM with cash or cheque ONLY.
Agenda to follow.
