That's a lot of acronyms.

CMM - Carleton Mississippi Mills
GPO - Green Party of Ontario
GPC - Green Party of Canada
CA - Constituency Association (Provincial term)
EDA - Electoral District Association (Federal term)
AGM - Annual General Meeting

This year the provincial and federal Green Party associations for CMM decided to work as a unit and we elected a unified executive. Except for CEO and financial, which we have kept separate for each association.

Outside of an election, the AGM is the time when we renew the hardcore volunteers and try and plant the seeds of strategy for the next year.

Financial reports for the year were given for GPO and GPC.

Jim McKenzie gave a nice analysis of the last provincial election.

John Hogg gave a presentation on the campaign plan for the next federal election.

Jake Cole talked about his views on when the federal election might happen and what it will take to win.

John Ogilvie gave a summary of the GPO AGM.

Jeannie Warnock and Mark MacKenzie the GPO Eastern Ontario representatives on the GPO council gave us an update the state of the GPO.

Mark MacKenzie closed out our meeting with a presentation about the recent Global Greens conference in Brazil.

We had guest speakers.
