The Yellowknife Artist Run Community Centre AGM

September 23rd, 2017
The Yellowknife Library Meeting Room


Let’s start September 23, 2017 at 2:00 PM at our AGM

The Yellowknife Artist Run Community Centre will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) September 23, 2017 at 2:00 PM in the Yellowknife Library Meeting Room in Centre Square Mall.  Mark it in your calendar right now.

2016-2017 was a pivotal year for ARCC.  A lot was accomplished.  We were active in local arts programs, sponsored artist residencies and hosted exhibitions.  We had great support from our major sponsors – the Government of the Northwest Territories and the City of Yellowknife. But we also had a drop in active involvement of volunteers in our programs and on our Board.  In response, your Board is recommending that it’s time for a re-visioning of ARCC’s role.

We need members, and everyone involved in art in Yellowknife, to be part of renewing the vision that will take ARCC to the next level. At the Annual Meeting we’ll be asking for your support for this.  The next step will be to hold a visioning workshop this fall.  We need your ideas to make sure this is the right thing to do and we’ll be asking for your suggestions about what the workshop will need to accomplish.     

At the AGM members will also be asked to approve 2016-2017 Financial Statements and to elect Directors. We need more committed volunteer Directors. Think about stepping up and volunteering.

Memberships will be on sale at the meeting and members who have not renewed their membership for 2017-2018 are asked to do so at the time of the meeting. Memberships are $20 (with a reduced rate of $10 for seniors and full time students).
