AA - Bridging the Mackenzie...

The 1,045-metre Deh Cho bridge (known locally as the AA bridge) crosses over the Mackenzie River in the Northwest Territories – a monumental waterway where the seasonal freeze-up and ice break-up previously blocked an essential transport route for weeks at a time.

The arching cable-stayed superstructure towers over the flat Arctic landscape near Fort Providence and now provides year-round road passage across the Mackenzie to and from Yellowknife, replacing the winter ice bridge and summer ferry.


Olds, AB - May 27-28, 2016

The Area Committee Meeting (ACM) serves as a steering committee for the two Area Assemblies each year.  Locations for each ACM are selected by a vote at the Area 78 Pre-Conference Assembly in March of the prior year.

The Area Committee is composed of all District Committee Members, Area Table Officers (6 members) and Chairs of the various Service Committees (9 members).  The Past Delegate is an automatic position after having served as Delegate for two years. 

All AA members are welcome to attend.  Visitors can't vote.

Criteria for hosting an ACM are outlined in the Area Assembly Guidelines booklet on Page 23.
