We have enough room for 50 attendees. Tickets are FREE but please book a seat in advance to ensure space.

As with our last AGM, this is a critical meeting, and we strongly encourage your attendance as it will determine the future viability of this long-standing organization.

PPP has been in existence for almost 50 years but never before have we experienced the serious challenges and setbacks we have experienced over the last two years. The organization has been rudderless for much of that time and the Executive members of the Board have had to engage in daily management of the organization for over a year.  

We currently have a hard-working Acting ED and an excellent contractor working out of Vancouver as well as a highly committed volunteer working in the office who has been keeping the organization afloat over these last few months. We are again poised to address the possibility of closing our doors permanently and celebrating the last 49 years of existence or pulling up our sleeves and getting to work on electing an active and engaged Board of Directors that pulls the organization back to life.  

It’s that serious. But we haven’t yet passed the point of no return. With your support, we can get through this. You can support us either by donating or by pointing us in the direction of grants we may not be aware of (or both).

But if we pull together, as PPP’s network has in the past, there are also signs of hope.

We will present the 2022-2023 annual report that will include a financial management report as well as the current status of 2023-2024 programming and fundraising initiatives. In addition, we recently had a Deep Sea Mining seminar and will be reporting on that.

We really look forward to your presence, your ideas, your energy, and your future involvement.

The nominations committee will be presenting a slate of candidates to be elected to the Board for the next two years but nominations from the floor are welcome. In addition we are always looking for volunteers to assist on committees.

If you have any specific questions about the AGM and the current status of PPP, please contact Muavae Va’a at mmpaopao@telus.net or Mere Sovick at director@pacificpeoplespartnership.org

In Solidarity,

Muavae Va’a, PPP Board President & Mere Sovick,PPP Acting Executive Director
