The Program Format
Based on a successful tradition, the 2016 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.
