Electing a Board: the last transitional step towards Réseau végétal Québec

Remember that this transitional process from PACN to Réseau végétal Québec officially began on March 26, 2021, with the adoption of the new logo, new mission statements, and a vision more representative of our members and two new values.

Gathered in Annual General Meeting on September 22, the members adopted the modifications to the General Regulations, including to the Member Categories and the composition of the Board of Directors for the association to have a governance that is representative of its members.

The formation of the new Réseau végétal Québec Board of Directors is officially completing the association’s transition.
