This year's AGM and Conference in Washington is sold out of hotel space, which is a first for OGCA! Next year, we will be in Toronto, and will make sure we have plenty of rooms on hand for those who are planning to attend. We hope that most of you will take advantage of the location and will make a long weekend of it!

In the meantime, if you haven't already submitted your proxy on the motions to be voted on, please do so now. On Monday afternoon, we sent you another copy of the proxy form. Please take a few minutes and complete it now! Thank you!
