Just announced, our keynote speaker will be Jo-Ann Roberts, GPC candidate and former CBC Radio Host. We’re very excited to have Jo-Ann join us, to tell tales from her high profile campaign in Victoria, where she ended in 2nd place with a mighty 23,666 votes (that’s more votes than 151 MPs who were elected!)
The convention is only 6 weeks away, and things are shaping up to be an excellent weekend. Here’s a snippet of what we have planned so far:
Hear from our Keynote Speaker, Jo-Ann Roberts
Participate in our Strategic Pathway to Election ’18 presentation & breakout sessions with GPO Leader Mike Schreiner & ED Becky Smit (members only)
Discuss the incoming policy and constitutional resolutions with passion and grace (available online)
Connect with like-minded, passionate Greens from across the province, in a beautiful setting in Eastern Ontario
Remember, all Convention registration payments and accommodations are eligible for a generous tax credit of up to 75% back. This means you could be paying as little at $73.53 after taxes for an entire weekend, food, gala dinner, speakers & accommodations!
Sign up for a day, evening or weekend. Keep tabs on the still evolving Calabogie Convention Agenda here.
