Join Us: AGM + Community Forum 

You are invited to our Community Forum and Annual General Meeting, to be held on Saturday, September 22 in Regina at the MacKenzie Art Gallery.

This year the Community Forum will focus on the ever relevant topic of basic annual income. SAA invited Simon Enoch, the Sask. Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, to discuss the pros and cons of the issue.

The SAA will also be holding a Mass Culture Meeting that same day. More information to follow.
