CanWaCH Annual General Meeting 2017

The Power of Partnership: Collaborate. Connect. Communicate.
Wednesday, November 1, 2017 – Ottawa

The 2017 Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH) will be held Wednesday, November 1st at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel.

The focus of the 2017 CanWaCH AGM is on our members and their enhanced capacity and effectiveness through the elements that power our partnership: collaborating, connecting and communicating. We know that when it comes to reaching the world’s most vulnerable, we can do more and we can do it even better together!

The program will feature:

  • Collective learning opportunities and highlighted collaboration among CanWaCH members;
  • Facilitated conversations on topics and future initiatives relative to our collective work;
  • Networking sessions to strengthen connections in our common programs and activities in support of women and children’s health globally; and
  • A business meeting that includes the Board of Directors nomination and elections, reports on the past year’s activities, key items for ratification by our members and input on organizational priorities for the year ahead.
