Yes, we have a new banner! It’s just one more example of how our association continues to grow and mature. Developed for use at GPOP conferences and promotional events, the retractable stand-up banner will add a professional touch to our gatherings.
It will be perfect for welcoming delegates to our annual conference and AGM, providing a backdrop for photo opportunities, and advertising our presence. The banner will make its debut at the 2018 GPOP conference and AGM in Victoria, BC on April 28/29 (details to follow soon). Meet you at the banner?
Applications are now open for the Hicks Morley Fellowship grant, created to support a member’s attendance at the GPOP annual Conference and AGM (being held this year in Victoria, BC from April 28-29).
