Every year, the Alberta Mycological Society hosts its Annual General Meeting followed by a mushroom dinner for its members. This annual event is a great way for members to get together in an informal setting, listen to a guest speaker, and have a delicious mushroom meal. At this event, our Alberta Mycological Society President awards the President’s Award. This award goes to non-board members for their extraordinary contributions and effort on behalf of the society.
Tickets to the President’s Dinner are released a few weeks before the event.
This year, the Alberta Mycological Society welcomes Dr. Richard Summerbell as the honorary speaker for the 2019 AGM Lunch and President’s Dinner.
Dr. Summerbell is a Canadian mycologist with the University of Toronto at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health.
At our AGM lunch, Dr. Summerbell will explain why fungal skin rashes are so common, while at our President’s Dinner, he will present a type of fungus that thrives off whisky, cognac, and rum.
