Invitation to Annual General Meeting

As an organization we are working to adjust to the reality of physical distancing and the continued closure of the museum. However, we believe it is important to come together as a membership at this time, and to carry out the business of the organization.

This year’s AGM will take place online and its pared-back format will include a high-level review of 2019, as it was a truly exceptional year.  Please save the date and time, April 22, 2020 at 6 pm, and plan to join us via Zoom, a free video and audio-conferencing platform. You can join by clicking the link below on your computer (using video or audio), or by calling in from a phone. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, instructions are provided below.

When it is safe to reopen the museum to the public and resume operations, we plan to hold a gathering of the membership, and at that time, celebrate the successes of the organization and its incredible supporters – past, present and future.

As we work to adapt to these trying times and always, thank you for your continued interest in, and support of our organization.


Carolyn Hyslop
Executive Director
