Upcoming Events

On March 26, 2021, the Alberta Government Bill 53 came into force. The Bill allows organizations such as the Peace Country Historical Society the option to meet and vote online.

Based on this, our next event will be our Annual General Meeting, which will use virtual technology, such as Zoom, or telephone to allow all members the opportunity to participate.

The date, time, and details on how to connect to the meeting will be given at least 21 days in advance of the meeting.
