The OAN just successfully concluded its 2019 Annual Meeting.  This was a very successful event which saw record numbers of people in attendance.  The Meeting included three days of important dialogue about our work and how our work will be guided by people living with HIV.

The Members’ meeting brought together over 85 persons who were actively engaged in rich discussions about HIV testing, the upcoming federal election and our sector’s Reconciliation work. We also welcomed two new Member agencies to the OAN – welcome to LetsStopAIDS and Women’s Health in Women’s Hands.

Our Saturday Annual Meeting brought our 2018-19 fiscal year to a close as we reported on our work to our membership. Click here to download our Annual Report. We also welcomed two new members to our Board –  welcome Randy Davis from the Gilbert Centre and Mark Atanasoff from OAHAS. We then said goodbye to two of our Board members – thanks to Holly Gauvin and Dale Maitland for their leadership on our Board.

A highlight of this event is the annual remembrance of those who have fought so valiantly and left behind their examples and cherished memories. There was not a dry eye in the room as we celebrated these memories. We ended the day with the placement of roses and notes of remembrance on the AIDS Memorial.

Thanks to everyone who made our 2019 Annual Meeting a success. We’ll see you all again next year.
