May 12 AGM, speaker, food, film, discussions

Individual women and representatives of women’s organizations are invited to our AGM on May 12 in Regina, with a presentation about women’s rights and the UN, a roundtable about current women’s groups’ activities in the province and a film.

WIN-S has just completed a successful year where we established a website, sent out our first newsletter and conducted a province-wide on-line webinar for International Women’s Day.

We invite you to attend all or part of our AGM meeting in person in Regina. For those who are unable to attend in person, we are hoping to be able to connect via Skype though the computer. We would love to meet with other groups and individuals interested in women’s issues.
