Thank you to all of the Armstrong Regional Co-op members that attended our 98th Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 16 Sep 2020. We are pleased to announce the three members that have been elected to a three year term on the Armstrong Regional Co-op Board of Directors and will be joining our other Board Members, Larry Hill, Dustin Griffin, Ken Earl, and Hans Petersen. We would also like to say a big thank you to our outgoing Board Members Geoff Maille, and Nairn Von Hahn who is stepping down from the Board after 21 years of service!
