It’s that time of year where we are asking all our members to join us for our 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM). The meeting will take place on Saturday, December 1, at 6:00 pm here at Hamilton Artists Inc. The AGM is an opportunity to hear about all that we've accomplished over the past year and all the new programs, events, exhibitions, workshops, and community initiatives coming up in 2019. We encourage you to attend and meet with the Board of Directors and Staff, and learn about the different committees, volunteer and networking opportunities at the Inc. All members in good standing are eligible to vote in the general meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend and it’s a great chance to meet and connect with your fellow members. Refreshments will follow as the AGM will lead directly into the SWARM opening reception and festivities.
