As previously announced, the Annual General Meeting of the Glebe Report Association will be held Monday May 16 from 7pm in the Pantry at the Glebe Community Centre, 175 Third Ave. All members of the Association are invited to attend. In addition other members of the community are welcome to observe. Those who quality for membership (by living working or volunteering in the Glebe) are invited to become members of the Association.

Attached is a draft agenda for Monday’s meeting, draft minutes of the previous AGM for approval and a summary outlining the Association’s financial situation. Comprehensive documentation on the financial state of the Association will be available at Monday’s meeting.

Note that David Reevely, investigative journalist whose writings enliven our daily diet of the Ottawa Citizen, and Glebe resident, has agreed to provide some personal views about contemporary journalism and changes in the industry.

At the last AGM it was agreed that our Board should normally be composed of nine members. On the eve of the AGM we are one short of that number. Please considering becoming a board member.

I look forward to seeing you on Monday.
