Message from the Board of Directors
ARMA YEG’s AGM was scheduled for September 29th. 10% of our membership RSVP’d and showed up, asked good questions, and listened to the problems we are likely to encounter in the coming year.
Unfortunately, this meeting was not a success.
We did not make quorum and as a result, we were not able to approve decisions to shape work for the coming year.
In August we released a Member Engagement survey that outlined ideas to reimagine our value offer and move ARMA YEG forward. This survey received a 15% response rate. Those folks deserve a lot of credit, they too see a need for change and a path forward. 80% of them even volunteered to help out.
And yet, this still isn’t enough.
For ARMA YEG to move forward in any format, we need at least 20 people at our rescheduled AGM on November 4th. This will allow us to accomplish one of these things:
a) Stay the course
b) Evolve and become competitive to give your membership fees value.
The other alternative, if we do not make quorum, is that we cease to exist and ARMA YEG’s significant capital reserve is absorbed by ARMA Canada.
The ask is that you RSVP to the Eventbrite for this meeting as soon as possible so we can have productive conversations and move forward. I realize this conversation can generate a lot of big emotions and concerns. If you want to chat about these before the meeting do not hesitate to reach out at email@example.com – we will be happy to set up a Zoom call, phone call, or email you back. You only need to reach out.
Thank you for taking the time to listen, see you on November 4th.

As our members live, meet, and work in the province of Alberta we acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. This includes the Métis Settlements and the Six Regions of the Métis Nation of Alberta within the historical Northwest Metis Homeland.
We make this acknowledgment as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
