You're Invited: 2021 AGM & Sharefest (Online)


Date: Wednesday, May 19 @ 7:00pm

Guelph Arts Council’s (GAC) staff and Board invite you to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Sharefest. We’ll vote on a few motions, share some notes on our 2020 year (a year of achievements for GAC, but still one we were ready to put behind us!), elect Directors, and thank some VIPs. But the business portion of the meeting will be wrapped up lickety-split, and followed by a special announcement and an open mic session. Let us know how you’ve been faring in the COVID times, whether your creative life has been exciting and productive, or taken a real beating. (Either way, you’re sure not alone.) Please RSVP and sign up for the Sharefest here. You’ll have a three-minute limit when you’re called on. (If you change your mind and decide to share at the meeting, that’s cool.)

Everyone is welcome to attend and share. However, GAC members must be current prior to May 19 in order to vote. Current members and anyone who was a member in 2020 but has lapsed will receive an email or letter that indicates their status. If you don’t get an AGM invitation by email or mail, you have not been a member in the recent past. There are benefits to joining the 400(ish) voices of GAC, and not just that you get to vote at the AGM. Join GAC here

Artists & arts groups - If cost is a barrier to membership in these super-tough times, just let Patti know when you RSVP for the AGM, or enter it in the Comments on the online form. We’ll hook you up.

Whatever your member or non-member status, we hope to see you online on May 19. Can’t attend but want to vote? Assign a proxy on the RSVP form. You can also RSVP by contacting Patti Broughton at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 519-836-3280. 

Please RSVP by 10 am Weds May 19 to receive login details and meeting materials.
