Save the Date! October 21, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.


With the pandemic clearly not over, the Alberta Mycological Society (AMS) has decided to host its Annual General Meeting (AGM) a few months late, and online. The AGM will be held on October 21, 2020, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. via ZOOM. The ZOOM link with all necessary documents will be sent to all AMS members soon. If you are interested in serving as a Director on the AMS board, please contact Karen Slevinsky by email at In the weeks prior to the AGM, a subcommittee will review all those interested in serving. There is no better time to serve a Society than during a time of adversity.

The recent news around the world hints at a COVID-19 resurgence locally. The AMS remains cautious. We are holding fewer forays, with fewer attendees, and with greater social distancing. Continuing in the spirit of safety, the President’s Dinner, which traditionally follows the AGM, will be cancelled this year. We will find another way to recognize long serving Directors and members who have made a tremendous contribution to our Society. Please stay tuned for more information.

Hope to see you online, soon.

Karen Slevinsky

President, AMS
