2017 Draft Program

The Program Format

Based on a successful tradition, the 2017 program will integrate the regular business of the annual general meeting, debate on resolutions and holding of elections with a variety of presentations and workshops on topical issues, addresses by key political speakers and opportunities for networking. In order to accommodate emergent issues the program does not become final until just prior to the AGM & Convention.
