The event was held at THEMUSEUM in Kitchener and it was a huge success with more than 100 people attending.

The AGM portion of the evening included financials for the year 2021, plus the nominations - and approval - of the 2022-2023 GVCA Executive Board and Board of Directors.

That was followed by our Business Heritage Tributes and our 2022 Hall of Fame Induction.

Check out some of the photos of the evening!

Photo Gallery: 2021 AGM will appear here on the public site.


After all the official work was done...  and because of the generosity of Platform Insurance... each attendee had access to THEMUSEUM's Rolling Stones UNZIPPED exhibition!
