ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The NB Media Co-op chose to be a co-operative because we believed that it would provide a democratic model for producing, disseminating and sustaining media.

The Annual General Meeting is a time for our members to review the milestones and challenges of the past year and discuss the future of the NB Media Co-op. We will elect board of directors and editorial board at this meeting. Find our agenda, documents to review before the AGM and call for nominations below.
