The Friends’ recent 2017 Annual Dinner had something for everyone.
The Honourable Lori Sigurdson, MLA for Edmonton-Riverview brought greetings from the Government of Alberta.
Chancellor Douglas Stollery talked about the ten things that surprised him about the University of Alberta – and we discovered that we are Number 1 (actually all volunteers, but check the photo for evidence). Thank you Chancellor Stollery for your enjoyable talk!
The dinner also featured the Friends’ short and sweet Annual General Meeting. Nazir Mulji presented the Treasurer’s report. Ken Regan presented a year end review and hinted at the new engagement opportunities coming soon.
The election of the executive positions for 2017-18 was completed as follows: The Friends elect Kate Freeman as President, Nazir Mulji as Vice President, Matthew Sharp as Treasurer, Ken Regan as Secretary.
