Annual General Meeting (AGM)

One of the most important events for parents on school council is the ASCA Conference in conjunction with the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The 2020 School Councils Conference & Annual General Meeting (AGM) is April 24 - 26 at the Delta by Marriott Edmonton South.

Held each spring at the end of April (usually the third weekend), some 350 delegates from across the province come together to share issues, participate in learning sessions and develop policy for the association. In addition, elections to the Board of Directors takes place at the AGM.

The three day event starts on Friday with registration, Resource Gallery exhibits, pre-sessions, and a welcome social. A (very) full Saturday agenda starts with breakfast, plenary and breakout sessions, address from the Education Ministry, lunch, preparation for the AGM and elections, and an evening awards banquet.

A resource gallery is presented, with over 30 exhibitors displaying products, services and information of value for parents in public education.
