2024 Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting serves as a crucial platform for collaboration and decision-making among members of the Residence Life Professional Association. The meeting aims to review accomplishments, discuss key challenges, and set strategic goals for the upcoming year. A number of awards are presented to some of our most outstanding association members to recognize their success each year. It serves as a forum for sharing best practices, discussing policy updates, and outlining new initiatives in areas such as inclusion, wellness, and professional development. During the Annual General Meeting there are also opportunities to get involved through the elections process for certain Board positions. The AGM is also where the Presidential transition occurs and a new President begins their term. 

Participating in the Annual General Meeting is an integral part experiencing the sense of community the RLPA is known for.


The 2024 General Meeting will be held at Olds College of Agriculture & Technology from March 13 – 15, 2024.



You can find the map and directions for the Annual General Meeting hosted at Olds College here.
