GDC Manitoba 2018 AGM & OOTS Podcast

Join us for chapter business, a podcast, socializing & hobnobbing

We like to make AGMs more than just reports and votes. This year, the good folks who create the Out of the Studio podcast series have agreed to provide our entertainment for the evening. Evan Kuz and Leif Norman will power up their recording equipment and let us see how one of their shows comes together – another in their fascinating interviews with important local designers.

There will be door prizes, the most tantalizing one being a $100 gift card for Tiny Feast.

Oliver Oike, CGD will be in the hot set for this upcoming podcast. As a design instructor at Red River College and past president of GDC Manitoba, he should have plenty to talk about.

GDC Manitoba is charting a new course. We look forward to a bright future for Manitoban designers and communication professionals, and in anticipation, the GDC Manitoba board has been engaged in strategic planning. At the 2018 AGM, we will highlight our plan and solicit feedback from membership. Please add your voice to the discussion, and help us become more effective and relevant in an evolving industry.

Please come out to the AGM and add your voice to the discussion.
