River Valley Alliance is a non-profit, charitable organization established to preserve, protect and enhance Alberta’s Capital Region River Valley, create one of the largest river valley parks in the world, and leave a legacy for generations to come.
On April 20th we hosted our Annual General Meeting and Stakeholder Reception at the Alfred H. Savage Centre. Thanks to everyone who came out, particularly Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities and MLA Rod Loyola who represents Edmonton-Ellerslie.
We celebrated the many volunteers who dedicate their time sharing the RVA vision with our partner municipalities. We also thanked Chris Sheard, outgoing Board Chair, who spent four years in the role. Our new Chair, Brent Collingwood thanked Chris for his dedicated service and shared his goals for the RVA going forward.
Guest speaker Stephanie Neufeld from Epocor discussed the safety of the North Saskatchewan River and Mark Lund from the Voyageur Brigade Society presented the schedule for the 2017 Canadian Voyageur Brigades.
We also released our 2016 Annual Report, our first online version. It highlights the activities of the organization in 2016 and contains our financial statements. Please view it at www.rivervalley.ab.ca/report
