EDA Director Nominations:
Our MP David Yurdiga was re-elected with strong support and record voter turnout. As Northern Affairs Critic, he is bringing our voice to Ottawa. The Electoral District Association supports our MP by providing Conservative messaging, funding, and the team to win the next election here locally. This is a great way to get involved if you are interested in politics. The EDA Board gives you an insider’s view of the strong volunteer presence behind Canadian politics.
At this AGM the members will elect a portion of the Board of Directors. At the last AGM we agreed to two year Directorships, with half starting last year. If you are interested, please contact our Nominating Committee. If you want more information about the role and commitment, you can call our outgoing President and Nominating Committee Chair, Kim Farwell at 780-792-1768.
