The Parkland Area Alberta Dressage Association's Annual General Meeting and Year-End Awards is a wrap!
After a brief AGM on Feb 1 to accept the director and financial reports, appoint our auditors and elect our new Board of Directors for 2020, the attendees enjoyed an interactive and very enlightening session of building a direction for PAADA. Members Christina Seidel and Lindsay Seidel-Wassenaar pulled ideas and suggestions from the attendees and developed a great set of strategies for the new board to go through and put into action for PAADA.
PAADA meetings are always open to all members and we encourage you to come out and help put into action some of the great ideas!! Coffee (or wine)  & snacks included!!
Check out PAADA's Facebook page for award winners from the AGM and more.
