2017 AGM on Saturday June 3 in Antigonish

Dear CWEN/RFE members,

As you may recall from previous communications and from last year’s AGM, in response to the formation of the Canadian Women Economists Committee/Comité des Femmes Économistes (CWEC/CFÉC), CWEN/RFÉ’s Executive proposed that CWEN/RFÉ should develop plans to wind up operations once it became clear that CWEC/CFÉC was operational. Members attending the AGM agreed to this course of action.

Subsequently, a Chair has been appointed for CWEC/CFÉC – Elizabeth Dhuey (our current Vice President) – and she has gathered an impressive group to work on the subcommittee.  They are expected to be in a position to take up most to all of the activities of CWEN/RFE over the course of the next 12 months.

Consequently, a motion to dissolve CWEN/RFE will be brought to members at this year’s AGM, which will be held from on Saturday June 3 in Antigonish from 3:45 to 4:15pm.

The timing of the AGM is between paper sessions, and we encourage as many members to attend as possible.

This motion, including background and further details on our plans for winding up, is available here.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email CWEN.RFE@gmail.com.
