Annual General Meeting

The University of Manitoba Business School Foundation’s Annual General Meeting is a yearly event hosted by The Associates of the Asper School of Business and open to all Associates, Young Associates and select faculty and staff of the Asper School of Business.

The AGM includes a dinner where a prominent leader of the local business community will be asked to give a presentation on their business experience and industry. The dinner is also a way for The Associates to recognize their first-year members, along with Associates who have been members for 10, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 years. First-year members are presented with a plaque signed by the Dean of the Asper School of Business and the President of the University of Manitoba. Milestone members receive a customized gift.
