The Saint Lucia National Trust (SLNT) says “Every citizen, resident and visitor to Saint Lucia with an interest in protecting the island’s natural, built and cultural heritage” is invited to its 42nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) next weekend.

The meeting is planned for Saturday, November 24th at the Finance Administrative Centre Conference Room, Pointe Seraphine, Castries, alongside a mini-exhibition of the Trust’s work, whilst the AGM begins promptly at 2 p.m.

According to SLNT’s Director, Mr. Bishnu Tulsie, “Our AGM gives the public an opportunity to get a comprehensive overview into the work of the Trust from November 2017 to November 2018.

“Members will also be able to share their views on how we should proceed with upcoming projects for 2019.

“The highlight of the meeting is the election of Councilors to guide the affairs of the Trust; members are reminded that only those who are financially current are able to participate in the election process.”

Members desirous of updating their memberships can do so prior to the AGM or on the day itself.

The Trust’s Patron, Her Excellency Dame Pearlette Louisy, will be on hand to officially declare the AGM open.

Also on the agenda is a presentation and discussion on the SLNT’s Strategic Plan Review to be facilitated by consultant Mr. Yves Renard.

Transportation will be provided for persons from Soufriere, Vieux Fort and environs.

According to the SLNT, “Everyone has a role in protecting our heritage, so everyone is encouraged to use this opportunity to learn firsthand about the conservation works of the Trust, its challenges and aspirations.”
