2024 AGM to be in Alberta

AFC Directors to Meet in Edmonton

The Anglican Foundation of Canada (AFC) will host its Annual General Meeting of members on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, at All Saints’ Anglican Cathedral, Edmonton, at 7:30 p.m. MDT. The AGM will be preceded by an Evensong service at 5:45 p.m. where the Most Rev. Linda Nicholls will preach, and the Rt. Rev. Stephen London will preside. Between the service and AGM, AFC will host a wine and cheese reception for guests in attendance.

“We are extending an invitation to all Anglicans in the Province of Alberta to join us,” says Dr. Scott Brubacher, Executive Director. Attendees will be provided with the meeting agenda, the Foundation’s audited financial statements for 2023, and the slate of 2024 board nominees for election.

In addition to the AGM, AFC will be holding its spring Board of Directors meetings during the day on May 22 and May 23. “The AFC board currently meets four times per year—twice virtually and twice in-person,” says Brubacher. “In recent years our spring meeting and AGM have been held in locations outside of Toronto. As the national foundation for the Anglican Church of Canada, it is important for AFC’s leaders to be engaged with and connected to the church across the country.”

The 2023 AGM and spring meetings were held in Halifax, and directors had the opportunity to hear first-hand impact reports from local grant recipients. Brubacher hopes the same will be possible for this year’s meeting in Edmonton. “Through a variety of partnerships and initiatives—including Say Yes! to Kids and the establishment of the David P. Jones Preaching Fund—and more than $250,000 in grants since 2010, AFC and the people of the Diocese of Edmonton have been working together to fund transformational ministry. I look forward to this in-person visit as a time to celebrate the strengthening bond between us.”
