MAM 2014: An interactive evening with LWF!
LWF’s 2014 members annual meeting took place at the Manitoba Museum on May 7.
Members were introduced to LWF’s 2014/15 board of directors and got updated on the foundation’s activities and achievements over the past year from executive director Alexis Kanu. Dr. Lyle Lockhart was honoured with LWF’s 2013 Alexander Bajkov Award – accepted in his absence on his behalf by founding LWF member and 2011 Bajkov Award-winner Rick Gamble. You can read more about Dr. Lockhart here. Congratulations, too, to our two lucky door-prize winners!
After the formal program, those in attendance enjoyed refreshments, mingled with LWF’s board, staff, Science Advisory Council and fellow members, and explored the Science Gallery’s interactive new exhibit, Lake Winnipeg: Shared Solutions. Special thanks to Scott Young, the Manitoba Museum’s manager of science communications and visitor experiences, for speaking at this year’s members meeting – and for staying the rest of the evening to answer questions.
LWF thanks our existing members for their continued support; without you, we would not have been able to achieve all that we have since 2005. And to new members: welcome! We look forward to interacting with you in the years to come!
