The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is an important yearly function for all members in good standing to attend and gives the Assiniboia Chamber of Commerce an opportunity to communicate with members and demonstrate organizational accountability, while fulfilling the legal requirements of our organization under the Boards of Trade Act, Part II. It also enables members to participate in the governance of the Assiniboia Chamber by electing the Board of Directors.
The AGM is a well-attended event. Members enjoy a report on activities and successes of the past year, learn about organizational initiatives for the year ahead, ask questions about the financial statements and pass a motion to accept the slate of Board members as presented. They also hear from the elected Chair of the Board.
To kick off this event, we will be presenting our Chamber Awards & Recognitions to some very deserving members.
Following the formal portion of the meeting, members will enjoy a presentation entitled In the Know: Centreport.
CentrePort Canada is North America’s largest tri-modal inland port; a unique hub for the distribution of goods to North American and global markets. With 20,000 acres of prime industrial land in both the City of Winnipeg (CentrePort South) and the R.M. of Rosser (CentrePort North), CentrePort is a transformational project for Manitoba and a significant driver of economic growth and activity in the capital region. With over 1200 acres of industrial land sold or conditionally sold in the last 12 months, activity on the footprint is heating up and shows no signs of slowing down.
Diane Gray, President & CEO, CentrePort Canada Inc. will provide an overview of the 20,000 acre inland port project, progress to date, and an update on recent developments, such as: infrastructure investment, recent industrial activity and the CentrePort Canada Rail Park.
