The RASC General Assembly in 2018 Welcome!
On behalf of the GA Organizing Committee, as well as the entire Calgary Centre, I would like to welcome you to the 2018 General Assembly in Calgary, Alberta. We are honoured to host this year’s General Assembly over the Canada Day long weekend. 2018 is a landmark year, as it marks not only the 150th Anniversary of the RASC, but also the 60th Anniversary of the Calgary Centre. The GA Organizing Committee has assembled an exciting program of events, including top-notch speakers, a look back on the history of our Society, as well as field trips to give you a taste of the Calgary area, as well as some of the magnificent sights of southern Alberta and the Rocky Mountains.
Steve Donaldson, President, Calgary Centre
