2017 Canw Cymru/Canoe Wales AGM

Join us for this year's AGM

Please note that pre-registration has now closed for the AGM. All members are still eligible to attend the meeting but will not be able to attend the free dinner following the AGM.


This year's AGM - or Annual General Meeting - is being held on Saturday 30 September 2017 from 6:30-7:30pm at the National White Water Centre in Bala, overlooking the beautiful Tryweryn. The AGM is where members get a chance to have their say about how Canoe Wales is governed and elect the newest member of our board of directors. If you're a Canoe Wales member, you can vote.

Straight after the AGM, we're hosting a free dinner for all members who have pre-registered. We're also waiving the facility fee all day at the NWWC   for any members pre-registered to attend the AGM and the river will be open for recreational paddling from above Skislope to Chapel Falls. There is also a Premier Division Canoe Slalom competition taking place on the Graveyard all weekend if you'd like to stay on dry land and check out the action (or if you're already planning to be there)!

To attend the dinner and take advantage of the facility fee waiver, we just ask that you pre-register so that we know how many of our lovely members will be coming along to share a meal with us. To register and for more information, please visit our online ticketing website here: https://www.picatic.com/CanoeWalesAGM
