The Swan Valley Animal Protection League AGM was held at the Northwest Regional Library on January 15, 2019 at 7pm.

The meeting was well attended.

SVAPL had a very successful year with fundraising and Corporate and private sponsorship. Holly Urban, Vice President, presented a report for the past year in review, outlining all of the events and ideas incorporated in 2018. Special thanks went out to Audrey Sercombe and Maggie Romak for their hard work and dedication to SVAPL in the past.

Coreen Stewart took over the chair for the elections. Deanna Chess headed up the Nominations Committee, and presented the positions available as follows: Past executive: Kelsa Unruh, Secretary; Kyla Tibbett, Treasurer; Holly Urban, Vice President; and Sherry Martin, President. Positions available for 2019: Secretary, Treasurer, Vice President and President. The previous executive allowed their names to stand for election for the 2019 year. There were no further nominations from the floor and all four were elected to the same positions for the 2019 year by acclamation. Committee Chairs were also appointed as follows: Coreen Stewart – Fundraising committee; Chantal Haggerty and Holly Urban – Grant committee co-chairs. Once the AGM concluded, a short regular meeting was then held.
